The cymothoid isopod Norileca indica is recorded from the branchial cavites of bigeye scad, Selar crumenophthalmus, and redtail scad, Decapterus kurroides (Perciformes: Carangidae), in the Panay Gulf, Province of Iloilo, the Philippines. The overall prevalence and mean intensity of N. indica were 40.7% and 1.05 for S. crumenophthalmus and 100% and 1.0 for D. kurroides. The majority of the specimens of N. indica from both host fishes were ovigerous females. This record represents the first report of N. indica from these carangids in the Philippines, and D. kurroides is a new host.
