Abstract

The lobster fishery of the southwest coast of India, in the rocky coast, south of Trivandrum, mostly contributed by the species Panulirus homarus (Linnaeus) has gained considerable importance due to the increasing demands for frozen lobster tails for export. During a regular sampling of this species for biological studies, on 12-12-1963, a specimen which was found to differ in-several characteris- tics from P. komarus was obtained and identified as Panulirus longipes (Milne Edwards).
