Abstract: Trichonotus cyclograptus (Alcock, 1890) is a sand diver fish species of family Trichonotidae, rediscovered from Bay of Bengal after 123 years. The present site of the collection of the specimens is more than 400 kilometers away northwardly from the type locality. Both the type locality as well as the current locality is within the Bay of Bengal along the East coast of India, which suggests that the species might be endemic to Bay of Bengal and within these 123 years the species is not been reported from elsewhere in the world. This species is also reported for the first time from West Bengal coast.
