General remarks on Indian leptocephali

Nair, R V (1960) General remarks on Indian leptocephali. Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Science , 52 (5). pp. 228-252.



The seas around India are fairly rich in varieties of eels and, therefore, it is not surprising that several kinds of leptocephali have been recorded in recent years from the coastal waters. Confinins our attention to the Ieptnceplinli collected from the Indian coastal waters only, it may be said that Kaup's account (1 856) of Leptocephalis aculicnuc/atus 2nd Leptocephalus dussurnieri collected from Malabar, Leptocephalus tallia from India and Maldives and Leptocephalus marginatus from Pondicherry may be considered to be the pioneer attempt in this field.
