    Abstract

    A specimen of the Red Sea and western Indian Ocean Pomacanthus maculosus was collected from the Mediterranean coast of Israel. This record constitutes the first substantiated** record from this region. In the case of a previous record of this species from Lebanon, no specimen was preserved. These two records, in addition to a video clip, an underwater photograph and several observations of this species from Israel indicates that P. maculosus has established a population in the Levant.
