Abstract. The presence of the deep-water flathead, Bembradium magnoculum Kishimoto, Kawai, Tashiro et Aungtonya, 2019, from the north-eastern Indian Ocean is reported for the first time. The species was previously known only from a single specimen collected off Phuket, Thailand, eastern Andaman Sea. One specimen measuring 101 mm SL was collected by the Fishery Oceanographic Research Vessel (FORV) Sagar Sampada with a demersal trawl (HSDT crustacean version) on the insular shelf north of Car Nicobar Island, Nicobar Islands, at 362 m depth. The specimen is described, and the new distributional record from the north-eastern Indian Ocean is confirmed.

Keywords: deepwater flatheads, Bembradium magnoculum, Plectrogeniidae, Scorpaeniformes, Nicobar Islands, India
