Abstract

Eighteen species of priacanthids have currently been reported worldwide of which maximum diversity is recorded in the Indo-Pacific region. A new record of a priacanthid Pristigenys niphonia from Indian waters is described herewith. Morphometric grid meristic measurements of the two specimens of P. niphonia collected bear close resemblance to that reported by Smith (1966) from Algoa, Western Indian Ocean samples as well as to those of Fowler (1931) from Japan.
