    Studies on the amphipods of the Indian and the neighbouring waters received the attention of Zoologists only as late as 1885 when Giles published a paper on the occurrence of two species of amphipods from Bengal. Subsequently in 1887, 1888 and 1890 he continued his work on amphipods and described about twenty-five more species from Indian waters bringing the total number of Indian amphipods to about twenty-seven out of which three species were recorded from the Madras Coast off the Seven Pagodas, Mahabalipuram. Stebbhg in 1904 had the opportunity of describing two species of amphipods, which had been sent to him from Ceylon. Two more new species from the brackish ponds at porti Canning, Lower Bengal havealso been described by Stebbing in 1907 and 1908. In 1904 Walker published a report on the amphipods that were collected by Professor Herdman and Mr. Hornell off the coasts of Ceylon. This formed one of the outstanding works on the amphipods of the Indian waters.
