Abstract

This paper reports eight species of caridean shrimps first time from the Gujarat coast i.e., Alpheus edwardsii (Audouin, 1826), Alpheus lobidens De Haan, 1849, Alpheus pacificus Dana, 1852, Athanas dimorphus Ortmann, 1894, Lysmata vittata (Stimpson, 1860), Thor amboinensis (de Man, 1888), Cuapetes grandis (Stimpson, 1860) and Palaemon pacificus (Stimpson, 1860). Present study fills gaps in the geographical distribution of these species that have previous records from the nearby areas.
