    Abstract

    The genus Callogobius enjoys a wide distribution in the Indo-Pacific region. Koumans (1953) has recorded the following five species from the Indo-Australian Archipelago: Callogobius centrolepis M. Weber; Callogobius hasseltii (Bleeker) ; Callogobius liolepis (Bleeker) Koumans; Callogobius sclateri Steindachner and Callogobius snelliusi Koumans. Out of these only Callogobius hasseltii (Bleeker) was known to occur in Indian waters (Munro, 1955), the rest being confined to the Pacific ocean. Since then another species, Callogobius seshaiyai Jacob and Rangarajan has been recorded from India (Jacob and Rangarajan, 1959, 1960).
