Abstract

The anthiid fish collected by a trawl unit operating between Munambam and Quilon (80 55’ N -100 09’N lat. and 760 04’-760 31’ E long.), along the Kerala coast in June 2008 was identified as Pseudanthias marcia Randall & Hoover, 1993, (Family Serranidae). P. marcia is a small fish, highly colourful, sexually dimorphic, dichromatic and hermaphroditic in behaviour. Though reported earlier from the Oman waters, the present record confirms its distribution in the Arabian Sea up to the southwest coast of India. Detailed description of the species and a comparative statement with types is given since it forms a new record from the Indian coastal waters
