Abstract

During the course of examination of tow-net collections made at Cochin, a number of specimens belonging to the genus Acetes H. Milne-Edwards were collected and a closer study of their taxonomic features revealed that they do not agree with those of any of the species described so far (Kemp, 1917 ; Hansen, 1919 ; Burkenroad, 1934 ; Colefax, 1940; Nataraj, 1947 and Pathansali, 1966). Hence they are dealt with here as new to science.
