We report the detection of the 158 μm [CII] line from the LIR ~ 1014 L๏ galaxy FSC 10026+4949 at z = 1.12. This is the first detection of [CII] from the z = 1-3 epoch of enhanced starformation. The L[CII]/LFIR ratio is 1.3 × 10-3, larger than the ratio typically seen in local ULIRGs, but similar to that measured in normal and starburst galaxies. This high ratio implies that the UV fields powering the far-infrared emission are of only modest intensity, and that FSC 10026+4949 may be undergoing a galaxy-wide starburst.
