Abstract

Unusual landing of the mottled fusilier Dipterygonotus balteatus was observed along the northern coast of Tamil Nadu during July and September 2006. Mottled fusiliers belong to the percoid family Caesionidae. While the juveniles are known to school together with other caesionids on coral reefs, the adults are usually distributed in near shore pelagic waters. D. balteatus occurs in Indo- Pacific waters, from East Africa, off Lakshadweep, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, to Philippines, Indo-China and northern Australia.
