Champsodon vorax and Champsodon nudivittis, two new records from the north-eastern Arabian Sea (Perciformes, Champsodontidae)

Abstract

Two species of Champsodon (Champsodontidae)—C. vorax and C. nudivittis were collected for the first time from the northern Arabian Sea at a depth of 282–393 m. This finding significantly expands the known distribution of the two species and supports the suggestion that the recent finding of both species in the eastern Mediterranean is due to their migration through the Suez Canal.
