    The two-spot razorfish, Iniistius bimaculatus (Rüppell, 1829), of the family Labridae is being reported for the first time from Visakhapatnam waters. A single specimen was collected from the fishing harbour at Visakhapatnam on 22 March, 2012. The total length and the weight of the recorded specimen were 196 mm and 43.7 g. Morphometric and meristic measurements were taken, photographed and the specimen was deposited in the Museum of Visakhapatnam Regional Centre of CMFRI. The present finding highlights the occurrence of this species in Visakhapatnam waters.
