Abstract
    A single specimen of Filimanus perplexa Feltes, 1991, collected in the Andaman Sea off Phuket Island, Thailand, represents the first reliable record from that region and the northernmost record for the species. The species is characterized by seven pectoral filaments, the middle pectoral filaments extending well past the midpoint of the anal fin, 13-15 anal fin rays, the posterior margin of the maxilla deeper than or equal to the eye diameter and the interorbital region of the frontals concave.
