Abstract

Two species, Acanthurus monroviae (Acanthuridae) and Arius parkii (Ariidae) were recorded recently from the Mediterranean coast of Israel. This report constitutes their first record from the Mediterranean. Their origin is in the west African tropics. A short description is given for Acanthurus monroviae. Arius parkii is hereby reidentified following a prior erroneous report as Arius thalassinus.
