Species of the gobiid fishes that are commonly known as musskippers abound on the mudflas of Selangor coasts.

One of the specimen of mudskipper Parapocryptes serperaster, a new record for Peninsular Malaysia was captured at Sungai Sembilang, Jeram, Selangor. Its morphological features and habitat utilization are discussed. The preliminary feeding habit is described based on their gu contents.
