Abstract

During a routine research cruise of R.V. Varuna on 6-8-1965 to the Cochin- Cape Comorin section of the Arabian sea, three specimens of the genus Lestidium were taken along with several other bathypelagic fishes from a bottom trawl net operated at 370 metres. This haul was made at 17.00 hours at a place (Lat. 8° 45'N, Long. 75° 50'E) about 95 km off Quilon. These specimens markedly differ from all the known species of the Genus Lestidium, and are described here as Lestidium blanci sp. nov.
