Abstract
    The ophiuroid species, Ophiomusium simplex Lyman of the family Ophiuridae, has hitherto been reported off Southern Japan, Philippine Islands and East Indian Archipelago from 54 to 300m. The new material reported here from the Andaman Islands (India) and Mergui Archipelago (Burma) extends the distribution of the species westward into the Bay of Bengal. The species has also been compared with O. australis H.L. Clark which has till recently been considered as a variety of O. simplex Lyman.
