Abstract

FOR the sake of convenience Hartman (1944, '59) justified the separation of the composite genus Onuphis Audouin and Edwards from the nearly related genus Nothria Malmgren by the presence of branched gills in the former and simple gill filaments in the latter. Both the genera are represented in the Indian waters although the seven species described from this area have been grouped under the composite Onuphis by Fauvel (1953) probably unaware of Hartman's review.
