Abstract

A number of clams occurring at Karwar and nearby places on the west coast of India were found to be commensalised by pea crabs. These crabs were identified as Pinnotheres gracilis and Pinnotheres modiolicolus. As these species are not so far reported from the Indian coasts, opportunity is taken to record them here.
