Abstract: Five species of fishes viz., Ichthyscopus lebeck, Lagocephalus spadiceus, Platax teira, Caesio caerulaurea and Thysanophrys celebica are recorded from the Indian Sundarbans, the deltaic bulge of the Ganges River in the State of West Bengal, India. Thysanophrys celebica and Lagocephalus spadiceus forms the first record for the state of West Bengal, India. Diagnostic characteristics and notes on distribution are provided in this paper. The present paper subsidises the already existing list of ichthyofaunal resources from the Indian Sundarbans region to provide a better understanding of the role of different species in the functioning of the ecosystem.
