Abstract

Extensive underwater surveys of marine fishes were conducted on the outer reef slope at Christmas Island and the Cocos (Keeling) Islands in the northeastern Indian Ocean from May to September 2005. Seven species of angelfishes and butterflyfishes were found to be new records. Chaetodon adiergastos, C. collare, C. decussatus, C. rafflesi and Genicanthus bellus were new records for Christmas Island, and Centropyge bicoior and C. flavicauda were new records for the Cocos (Keeling) Islands. Details on the depth, location, number of individuals and body size are presented.
