Ulua mandibularis (McLeay) (Carangidae, Pisces), A new record from the Indian seas

Luther, G (1968) Ulua mandibularis (McLeay) (Carangidae, Pisces), A new record from the Indian seas. Indian Journal of Fisheries, 15 (1&2). pp. 180-187.



The paper reports for the first time the occurrence of Ulua mandibularis in the Indian seas. A detailed description of the species is given including several important and additional characters. The changes in body form, in the soft dorsal fin length and in the dentition with growth of fish are described and illustrated. A study of the descriptions of U. mandibularis (Macleay) and U. richardsoni Jordan and Snyder in the light of the present observations reveals them to be synonymous, the latter being the junior synonym.
