Nair, Rekha J and Geetha, P M (2006) First record of the Japanese bigeye Pristigenys niphonia (Cuvier & Valenciennes) (Perciforrnes: Priacanthidae) from the Indian seas. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 48 (2). pp. 263-266.
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.
