Pseudomugil ivantsoffi, a new species of blue-eye, is described on the basis of 60 specimens, 17.9-30.8 mm SL, collected from the Timika vicinity of southern Irian Jaya. The new species was formerly confused with P. reticulates, which occurs in the vicinity of Lake Ayamaru on the Vogelkop Peninsula of Irian Jaya. The differences between these two species are contrasted and illustrations of each are provided.
