Abhay Deshmukh, Branko Dragicevic, Charan Kumar Paidi, Karthikeyan Muniraj. New record of Desmodema polystictum from northwestern Indian Ocean. Cybium, International Journal of Ichtyology, 41(4): 379-380, Jan (2017).


The species Desmodema polystictum (Ogilby, 1898) is reported for the first time in the waters of Lakshadweep, India. a single specimen (14.8 cm total length and 29.2 g) was caught by pelagic trawl near minicoy island at a depth of 100 m. Morphological characteristics of identification are also presented.

Key words – Trachipteridae - Desmodema polystictum - nW indi- an Ocean - Lakshadweep waters - Mesopelagic fish - new record.

Trachipteridae (Lampridiformes), the ribbonfish family, includes three genera (Trachipterus, Zu and Desmodema), with at least seven species. Trachipterids are distributed worldwide in tropical and temperate waters in marine pelagic environment (nel- son, 2006). The family is characterized by features such as long compressed ribbon or tape-shaped body, short head, and narrow mouth (heemstra and kannemeyer, 1986). Two species have been identified in the genus Desmodema – Desmodema polystictum (Ogilby, 1898) and Desmodema lorum rosenblatt & Butler, 1977. The caudal structure of D. polystictum is unique in Trachipteridae in that all of the caudal rays are born on the terminal centrum and the hypural of the first ural centrum is rayless (richard and Butler 1977). D. polystictum is scaleless; instead, tubercles and pores are present. D. polystictum juveniles are silvery with profuse dark spot- ting (polka dotted) but the adults lack spots.

Zacharia and Kannan (2012) have reported the first record of D. polystictum from indian waters. A single specimen of D. poly- stictum (TL = 107 cm, W = 480 g) was collected from Tharuvaiku- lam landing centre, north to Tuticorin, on the south-east coast of india in september 2010. Bauchot and Bianchi (1984) have report- ed the first record of the single specimen of this species from North indian Ocean caught at 72 m depth. Other occurrences include areas of Western Pacific (Japan, Taiwan, Philippines, australia, New Zea- land, and China), eastern Atlantic (namibia) and Western Atlantic (Florida, Cuba) (Ogilby, 1898; Aguiar and Quéro, 1990; Froese and Pauly, 2010; iaTTC, 2016). We report here the first record of this species from Lakshadweep waters (West coast of india).
