In the present paper we document the first record of a Red Sea (Lessepsian migrant) species—the Red Sea bannerfish, Heniochus intermedius Steindachner, 1893, from Israel which constitutes the third record of this fish from the Mediterranean. The presently reported three specimens of this species from the Levant, in addition to several observations, indicate that this species has established a small population in this region.
