A specimen of Gymnocranius cf. grandoculis was collected from Khasab City, Musandam region, Oman. The fish
represents the first record of the genus from the Arabian Gulf. Color patterns as well as meristic and morphometric
characters match to those reported for Gymnocranius grandoculis, although new species have been described
recently and the taxonomy of Indian Ocean populations has not been resolved.
