Michel Bariche: First record of the angelfish Pomacanthus maculosus (Teleostei: Pomacanthidae) in the Mediterranean, pp. 31-33

Abstract
The Western Indian Yellowbar Angelfish Pomacanthus maculosus is recorded for the first time from the eastern Mediterranean, in the coastal waters of Lebanon. Two individuals were observed underwater but only one specimen was obtained. These records suggest a very recent presence of the species in the Mediterranean. Because of the proximity to the Suez Canal, it is considered as a new case of Lessepsian migration. However, other means of introduction cannot be ruled out.
