    Abstract

    A single specimen of Xanthichthys lineopunctatus (187 mm SL and weight 212 gm) was obtained from trawl net operated at depth range of 40-50 m off Visakhapatnam and landed at Visakhapatnam Fisheries Harbour on 20th July 2016. It is reported for the first time from the east coast of India, Bay of Bengal. Earlier it was recorded from the south west coast of India, Arabian Sea and from the Indo-West Pacific. This report of Xanthichthys lineopunctatus in the Bay of Bengal extends its geographic distribution within the Indian Ocean.
