    Carapus mourlani (Petit, 1934) is a commensal of sea stars and has the ability to produce sounds. Interestingly, we show here that this fish has a larger repertoire than previously recorded.Carapus mourlani can produce trains of 2–6 pulses, suites of double-pulses, staccatos of 2–17 weak pulses, and hums. These sounds are most probably emitted for species identification and for conspecific attraction, but we do not know their exact functions because they were all produced once the fish were inside the host. The ability to produce various specific messages indicates this behavior is important to the biology of this symbiotic, nocturnal species.
