Apte, D.A., Sumer Verma & Digant Desai (2017). An Illustrated checklist of Opisthobranch fauna (Heterobranchia: Mollusca) of Andaman and Nicobar Islands with 32 new records to India. Journal of Bombay Natural History Society, 112(3), Sept-Dec 2015, 127-137. doi: 10.17087/jbnhs/2015/v112i3/114420.

Abstract

The present study was carried out over two years between 2013 and 2015 along the Andaman & Nicobar Islands, and yielded 128 species, of which 30 species are new records to Indian waters. Aglajidae, Actinocyclidae, and Dendrodorididae is represented by 1 species each; Chromodorididae – 17 species, Discodorididae and Polyceridae – 3 species each, and Facelinidae – 4 species. Deeper waters between 25 and 40 m still remain relatively unexplored over vast territory in India in general and Andaman & Nicobar Islands in particular. Thus, more focused studies from these depths may reveal many more undocumented opisthobranch fauna.
