    Abstract

    Heterocarpus genus belong to the family Pandalidae (Decapoda, Caridea) which are common in deeper waters. Some species are of commercial value or fishery potential by their large size. They are characterized by rostrum armed with teeth on both margins; carapace with postrostral carina extending nearly to posterior margin and with 1 or more longitudinal lateral carinae; pereopods with 2nd pair distinctly unequal and dissimilar. The species Heterocarpus chani was recorded from various fishing harbours on the south coast (Sakthikulangara Fishing Harbour; Kalamuku Landing centre (Kerala) and the Thoothukudi and Nagapattinam Fisheries Harbours Tamil Nadu) from the deep-sea catches taken at depth of 200 – 350 m.
