Kuthalingam, M D K and Rajagopalan, M S and Joel, J J (1971) Tetrosomus concatenatus (Bloch) a new record for Indian Seas. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 12 (1&2). pp. 227-228.



While examining the shore seine catches at Vizhingam Bay on 30-4-69 we came across three species of box fishes of the family Ostraciontidae. Two of the species viz., Ostracion gibbosus^ and Ostracion nasus' are already known from Indian waters (Day 1889 and Munro 1955) and the third species is found to agree with the descriptions given by Smith (1961) for Ostracion concatenatus (Bloch) which is the first record from Indian coast.
