    Abstract

    The family Belonidae is comprised of 34 valid species under 10 genera, all over the world (Collette, 2003). Eight of the ten genera are monotypic or contain only two or three species. Highest numbers of species of the family are found in two genera, Tylosurus and Strongylura with 6 and 14 species, respectively while five species are polytypic containing a total of 17 subspecies. In India 8 valid species of needle fish under 4 genera were reported namely Ablennes hians (Valenciennes, 1846), Platybelone argalus platyura (Bennett, 1832), Tylosurus crocodilus (Péron & Lesueur, 1821), T. acus melanotus (Bleeker, 1850), Strongylura strongylura (van Hasselt, 1823), S. leiura (Bleeker, 1850), S. incisa (Valenciennes, 1846) and Xenentodon cancila (Hamilton, 1822).
