    We present a species list of the marine cnidarians recorded from the Pakistani waters, north­ern Arabian Sea. It comprises a total of 119 species distributed in 41 families, 14 orders and 4 classes. With 44 species, the order Scleractinia (class Anthozoa) is the best-represented cnidarian taxon. Cnidarians from Pakistan are a poorly studied group which is mentioned in few occasional papers; no new species have been described from the region. The present paper will provide baseline information for future studies in Pakistan.
