    Abstract

    The green and brown mussels hitherto described from the coasts of India as Mytilus have been brought under the genus Perna. The green mussel recorded and described as M. viridis by earlier workers has been renamed as P. viridis. The brown mussel exhibits characters which separate it from the green mussel (P. viridis) and hence has been subjected to a detailed study on the basis of which it has been assigned to a new species P. indica
