    Abstract

    Our knowledge of stomatopods from the seas around India is fairly extensive. The monograph of Kemp (1913) is a landmark in the history of the group from the region. Subsequent contributions by Kemp and Chopra (1921), Chopra (1934), Chopra (1939) and Alikunhi (1967) have enriched our knowledge of the group. While making collections for a detailed study of the group, the following three species which are new records to the seas around India Lysiosquilla tredecimdentata Holthuis (Family Lysiosquillidae) and Alima hyalina Leach, and CarinosquUla lirata (Kemp and Chopra) (Family Squillidae)were collected. The diagnostic characters of each species and detailed measurements of some specimens are given. Attention is also drawn to differences observed from earlier descriptions. Data on the total length (TL) measured from the tip of the rostrum to the tip of the submedian spines of the telson; the carapace length (CL) exclusive of rostrum ; the abdominal width measured at the 5th somite and the corneal index (CI) obtained by dividing the carapace length by the corneal width and multiplying it by 100 are given.
