A new sparoid fish, Gymnocranius elongatus is reported from the southern South China Sea and the sea off the coast of the northwestern Australia.The fish described by Bleeker (1877) under the name of G. griseus is considered to belong to the present species. A detailed comparison of the species with another Gymnocroanius species, which is the commonest fish among the genus in the South China Sea and has been usually identified as G. griseus (Temminck and Schlegel), is given. Need for a future study on the specific name of the latter is suggested.
