Abstract

A specimen of ArguluJ taken from the body surface of the marine perch Psammo- perca waigiensis (Cuvier) caught from the Palk Bay near Mandapam has been found to be a new species, and its description is given here. Species and subspecies of the genus Argulus Milller so far recorded from India are A. indieus Weber, A. gigan- teus Ramakrishna, A. bengalen.ri.r Ramakrishna, A. siameni-is Wilson, A. siamensis penin.rulari.r Ramakrishna and A. puthenvelien.ri.r Ramakrishna (see Ramakrishna, 1951, 1962 ) . The postembryonic development of A. puthenvelien.ri.r has been dealt with by Thomas (1961). Thomas & Devaraj (in press) have described two new species, namely A. fluviatili.r and A. cauveriensis collected from the river Cauvery.
