Abstract

A single specimen (57.6 mm standard length) of Suttonia lineata Gosline, 1960, recently collected from Iwo Island, Volcano Islands, Japan and described herein, represents the first confirmed record of S. lineata from Japan and northernmost record of the species, which was previously known from Christmas and Cocos Keeling islands in the eastern Indian Ocean and various localities in the Pacific Ocean. The new standard Japanese name Kazan-kurenai-togemegisu, is proposed for the species.
