Ostorhinchus fleurieu Lacepede, 1802 is recorded from Japan for the first time on the basis of 21 specimens (37.6-106.8mm standard length) collected from Kagoshima Prefecture, southern Japan. On the basis of underwater photographs, Osezaki, Izu Peninsula, is regarded as the northernmost record of the species. The new Japanese name "Kongo-tenjikudai" is proposed for the species. Comparisons of Ostorhinchus fleurieu with closely related species, O. aureus, based on 21 and 12 specimens, respectively, from Japan showed that O. fleurieu differed from O. aureus in having fewer total gill rakers (19-21, mode 21 vs. 23-24, 24 in the latter) and developed gill rakers (16-18, 18 vs. 18-21, 20), the pelvic-fin base located below the first lateral-line scale (vs. second scale), and a poorly defined, barrel-shaped black band on the caudal peduncle (vs. well-defined, sandglass-shaped band).
