Abstract: The fangtooth moray, Enchelycore anatina (Lowe, 1838), native to the eastern Atlantic Ocean but also known from eastern sections of the Mediterranean, is recorded for the fi rst time from Maltese coastal waters in the central Mediterranean. This record is the westernmost one within the Mediterranean and the observed E. anatina individual co-occurred with an individual of Muraena helena Linnaeus, 1758.
