Abstract

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.
