Abstract

From a total of 241 wild fishes of 18 species examined, one specimen with deformed inter-nostril epidermis was found in the finepatterned puffer, <I>Takifugu poecilonotus</I>. The specimen had a normal inter-nostril epidermis for the right nostril but the left nostril was deformed. Although the deformed nostril had two epidermal membranes, they were not combined. The other 9 specimens of the same species caught had normal epidermis. Deformity of the inter-nostril epidermis very rarely occurs in wild fishes. This finding is only the second one after striped puffer, <I>Takifugu xanthopterus</I>.
