First Record of the Reef Fish, Lesson’s Thick Lip Plectorhinchus lessonii (Cuvier 1830) (Family: Haemulidae) from Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India

This paper reports the occurrence of Lesson’s thick lip Plectorhinchus lessonii (Cuvier 1830), for the first time from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India. Two specimens were collected from the mangrove creek of Burmanallah in South Andaman, and identified as Plectorhinchus lessonii. This species was known so far from Western Pacific and southeastern Indian Ocean up to Australia and Philippines. The present report extends the distributional range of Plectorhinchus lessonii beyond Australian waters to Andaman waters.
