Abstract
    A specimen of the Indo-Pacific cube boxfish Ostracion cubicus and two specimens of the Indo-Pacific gaper Champsodon vorax were collected from off the coast of Lebanon. This constitutes the first record of the boxfish in the region and confirms the establishment of a population of the gaper in the Mediterranean.
