    Abstract

    The present report is based on a small collection of porcellanids from the Gulf of Mannar off Tuticorin and has been found to be of interest since it includes a new species and yet another species which has not so far been recorded from the coasts of Indian peninsula. All three species were found to live as commensal on coelenterates and were collected from depths ranging from 18 to 25 metres using aqualung.
