Abstract

The Annular sole, Synaptura annularis (Fowler, 1933) has been recorded for the first time from Indian waters. This fish is distinguished from other congeneric species occurring in this area (S. contmer.soniana and S. albomarulam) by the presence of large annular patches on the body and an unbranched pectoral fin. Comparitive statement with the holotype and paratype of the species are given.
