The first records of the redbanded seabream, Pagrus auriga Valenciennes, 1843 (Sparidae), and the bastard grunt, Pomadasys incisus (Bowdich, 1825) (Haemulidae), from Galician waters (NW Spain) are reported herewith. Both findings constitute the northernmost confirmed records of those fishes in the eastern Atlantic. The Galician waters seem to be an important observation point of this phenomenon as evidenced by the high number of new tropical-affinity fishes recorded during the last years in this area.
