In the present paper we report the first substantiated record of the Scalloped ribbonfish Zu cristatus (Bonelli, 1819) from the Mediterranean coast of Israel. The previous unsubstantiated record from Israel was based on a juvenile specimen that was found on the shore over seven decades ago and was not saved.
