Abstract: During May 2017, two specimens of the Lessepsian fish species, Upeneus pori Ben-Tuvia et Golani, 1989, were recorded for the first time from the waters off eastern Sicily, Italy, along the western Ionian Sea. The species apparently expanded its distribution within the central Mediterranean, from the already colonized Tunisian waters. This new finding increases to nine the number of Lessepsian fish species reported from southern Italian waters to date.
Description: We are grateful to Mr Nene Napoli for communicating promptly the first finding of Upeneus pori and to Mr Lorenzo Molino from the fishing vessel Marialucia for providing us with the second specimen.
