Abstract

The present paper reports new records of Apogon smithi in Turkey and A. queketti in Israel and raises the subject of the newly emerging pattern of nearly simultaneous appearance of new Indo-Pacific records along the entire Levantine coast of the Mediterranean Sea. A key to the species of Apogon in the Mediterranean is supplied.
