Abstract

The Day’s goby, Acentrogobius dayi (one specimen) was obtained from a marsh near Al-Fuhud Village, south-west of Baghdad, Iraq. The presence of this species in the new habitat is considered a new record for Day’s goby in the southern marshes of Iraq. Possibilities for such presence were presented.
