A new sharpnose puffer, Canthigaster punctata, is described on the basis of two specimens collected from 92m depth in the western Indian Ocean. This species is similar to C. callisterna and C. flavoreticulata from the South Pacific; it differs from the former in having fewer pectoral rays (15 vs 16-18), and from the latter in having many dark spots on the dorsal half of body instead of irregular dark lines.
