Specimens of the gobiid Buenia affinis Iljin, 1930 were collected during scuba-diving in the Kvarner area, northern Adriatic Sea. Specimens were found on a sandy bottom, at depths of 3-25 m. Standard lengths of the 16 specimens collected were from 23.9-33.3 mm. The present finding is the first positive record in the Adriatic Sea and provides data on morphology (morphometrics, meristics, papillae counts, coloration) and ecology (habitat, biocenosis, fish assemblage) of the Adriatic specimens.
