We record the presence of 35 cardinalfish species from the marine waters of Singapore based on a review of existing literature and examination of museum specimens. Another 13 species previously recorded as occurring in Singapore are considered doubtful records. Five of the 35 species reported here (Apogon crassiceps, Apogonichthyoides timorensis, Jaydia lineata, Nectamia similis, and Siphamia tubifer) are new records for Singapore, while another four species have not been encountered in more than a century.
