Four specimens (280.0–311.0 mm standard length) of Epinephelus retouti Bleeker, 1868, previously recorded in Japanese waters only from the Izu and Ogasawara islands and Okinawa Prefecture, were collected from the middle of the Satsunan Islands (Tokara Islands and Amami-oshima island). The specimens described in detail herein represent the first records of the species from the Satsunan Islands. In addition, three specimens (316.0–386.0 mm standard length) of Saloptia powelli Smith, 1964, whose northern limit of distributional range had been considered to be Yoron-jima island, in the Amami Islands, were collected from the north of the Tokara Islands. These specimens represent a ca. 350 km northward distributional range extension of the species.
