Notograptus is a genus of marine fish in subclass Actinopterygii and order Perciformes. They are sometimes placed in a family of their own, Notograptidae, or may instead be included in the family Plesiopidae.[1][2] Notograptus supposedly bears a relationship with Acanthoplesiops.[3]

Notograptus contains these species:[4]
