Lissocarcinus orbicularis Dana, which has a very wide distribution from South Africa and Red Sea to Japan and Hawaii, has already been recorded from the Laccadive and Maldive Islands by Alcock (1899) and Borradaile (1903). Borradaile has also observed its commensalic mode of life when he collected specimens from the tentacles of Holothuria nigra. Edmondson (1954) recorded the species as a commensal on Holothuria atra also.
