Range extensions for 24 species of western Indian Ocean fishes are recorded, including new additions to the fish fauna of the Republic of South Africa. It was found that Lycodontis laysanus (Steindachner), as referred to by Smith (1962a), is the common Pacific Gymnotorax (Abbott). On the basis of specimens examined, Gobius keiensis Smith, 1938, is a junior synonym of Gobius acitipenis, Valenciennes.
