The burrowing goby, Trypauchen vagina, is recorded for the first time from the Iranian coast of the Persian Gulf. Only one other record is known for this species from the Persian Gulf; that record is from Kuwait. The subject record is a new addition to the ichthyofauna of Iran resulting from four T. Vagina specimens being collected from north of Qeshm Island in the Khoran Strait (26°56?N, 55°54?E) in the Persian Gulf.
