Abstract
The anthiinid fish Pseudanthias fasciatus (Kamohara, 1954) is reported from Indian waters for the first time. These fishes were found in trawler bycatch landed at the Neendakara fisheries harbour (090 41� 18.28" N lat. 76° 33� 05.89" E long.) near Kollam, Kerala, India. The morphometric and meristic characters of the two specimens obtained correspond with those of P. fasciatus published previously.
