James, P S B R and Thomas, P A and Pillai, C S G and Achari, G P Kumaraswamy (1969) Catalogue of Types and of Sponges, Corals, Polychaetes, Crabs and Echinoderms in the Reference Collections of the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute. CMFRI Bulletin, 7 . pp. 1-66.
The Reference collections of the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute at Mandapam Camp have steadily grown in the past two decades since its inception. Although it was originally intended to have these collections primarily with a view to representing economically important groups from the marine habitats, in recent years, with a number of Research Scholars specializing in varied zoological groups out of taxonomic and academic interests, the collections of the Institute have increased substantially. In the present Bulletin are listed 46 Type species representing different phyla, 152 species of sponges,160 species of corals, 200 species of crabs and hermit-crabs and 185 species of echinoderms. Some of the species listed are new records from the seas around India or even from the Indian Ocean as reported by the research workers of this institute. For types, references are given followed by type category, registered number, locality and other particulars. For reference collections the name of the species is followed by registered number and localities of occurrence.
