Abstract
    Taxonomy, ecology and distribution of mysids collected from the coastal waters of Maharashtra and South Gujarat, India, are presented. Fourteen species belonging to seven genera are represented, of which one species, Acanthomysis microps, is described as new to science. The new species is distinguished from all the known species of the genus by the combination of broadly rounded rostrum, narrower eyes and the spination of the uropodal endopod and telson. Other species recorded are Siriella dubia, S. jonesi, Rhopalophthalmus mumbayensis, R. anishi, R. murudana, R. vijayai, Gastrosaccus dunckeri, Eurobowmaniella muticus, Afromysis dentisinus, Acanthomysis pelagica, A. platycauda, A. macrops and Mesopodopsis orientalis, and the differences shown by the present specimens from the published description are fully discussed with figures.
