Abstract: We report the first record from Pakistan of Scleractinian coral species Galaxea fascicularis (Linnaeus, 1767) belonging to the Family Oculinidae (Gray, 1847). The specimens have been found in Paradise Point on the Arabian Sea, a beach located at 31 km west of Karachi city, Sindh, Pakistan.
