Abstract

Two female and one male specimens of the Seychelles dragonet, Synchiropus sechellensis were caught by a commercial trawl at a depths of about 55-65 m on 04 November 2017 from the Aydıncık coast, Turkey. The present paper reports the second record of S. sechellensis in the southeastern coast of Turkey. Morphometric and meristic characters of the the specimens are given with some remarks about the geographical distribution of the species in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea. The present study, S. sechellensis was recorded from a new locality for the coasts of Turkey. The present observation indicates an established population of the species in the southern coast of Turkey.
