A single female specimen (36.7 mm standard length) of Blenniella interrupta (Bleeker, 1857) (Blenniidae) was collected from Tanega-shima island in the Osumi Islands, Kagoshima, Japan. In Japanese waters, this species has previously been known only from a single female specimen from Yonaguni-jima island in the Yaeyama Islands. The present specimen represents both the second record from the Japanese waters and the northernmost record of the species.
