Abstract

Family Cepolidae or bandfishes comprise of benthic or suprabenthic fishes of which only three species have so far been reported from India. Bandfish are an important part of the diet of many oceanic predators. During a routine fish collection, a cepolid fish of total length 348 mm was obtained in the discards of a deep sea shrimp trawler unit at Kalamukku. The fish was later identified as Cepola macrophthalma. Since the fish is from a new locality, details are given herewith.
