The shortbill spearfish Tetrapturus angustirostris Tanaka, 1915 is a widespread tropical and temperate species but is relatively rare, with very few published or cataloged records in museums and fish collections. We reported for the first time a specimen of T. angustirostris from the Pacific coast of Mexico, including meristic, morphometric and molecular data, which was caught in the vicinity of Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, Mexico, in November 2015.
