The relationship between the resolvent and Estrada indices for the alkanes has been recently demonstrated. That relationship involved the first Zagreb index besides these two eigenvalue-based molecular descriptors. In this paper, the quality of the correlation is tested in the case of isomeric benzenoid hydrocarbons, where the first Zagreb index is constant. Extraordinary linear correlations are identified for all studied groups of isomeric benzenoid hydrocarbons. Additionally, the relationship of these indices with the boiling points of a set of benzenoid hydrocarbons is presented.
