    Abstract

    Andaman rotifers are least studied and authenticated records are not available for sufficing the data on their biodiversity. Rotifers were collected from brackish water to see their species diversity. Rotifers identified during this study are Brachionus plicatilis, B. rotundiformis, B.murrayi, B.urceolaris, B. calyciflorus, B. falcatus and Kellicotia sp. This is a primary record on Brachionids of saline waters of Andaman. The detailed description of the rotifers recorded during the study in the coastal waters of S. Andaman is presented for substantiating the taxonomic relevance of the study.
