Shanbhogue, S L (1971) A new species of Heterosquilla (Crustacea : Stomatopoda) from Indian seas. Journal of Marine Biological Association of India, 12 (1&2). pp. 100-104.



For a detailed study of stomatopods from Indian Seas, collections were made from various localities along the coasts. This interesting Heterosquilla was identified amongst the crustacean specimens from the Minicoy Island (Laccadives) from the collections of Dr. S. Jones. Although two species namely H. insignis and H. spinosa of this genus have been recorded from Indian waters so far, the present material exhibited striking differences from these and had more similarities with H, mccullochae (Schmitt, 1940) which is known from Gulf of California.
