Pillai, N Krishna (1965) Pelagic amphipods in the collections of the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute, India: Part I. Family Oxycephalidae. In: Proceedings of the symposium on Crustacea Part I, MBAI, 12-15 January 1965 , Ernakulam .
Since Bovallius published his monograph on the Oxycephalidae, this family has not been studied in detail. Page reviewed the family and added substantially to our knowledge of the synonymy, distribution and biology of the species, but only briefly dealt with the taxonomy. The present collection, made in the Arabian Sea, includes all except two species, considered valid by Page. Hence this opportunity is availed of to giving full illustrated descriptions of all the species which number fifteen.
