A new Suez Canal immigrant fish, a goby Oxyurichthys papuensis (Valenciennes, 1837) of wide Indo-Pacific distribution, was found in August 1982 in the vicinity of Tel Aviv and Ashdod on the Mediterranean coast of Israel. This goby is now very common in trawling grounds on sandy and muddy bottoms at depths of 34-45 m. A description of Oxyurichthys papuensis is given based on eastern Mediterranean and southern Red Sea specimens.
