Abstract
    Three new species of the mesopsammic genus Hesionides (H. minima, H. peculiaris, H. indooceanica) are described out of collections from sandy beaches on Andaman Archipelago and on the south-east coast of the Indian mainland (Bay of Bengal). H. arenaria and H. gohari, already recorded earlier on the Indian coast, are compared. The authors believe that Hesionides is identical with the genus Anophthalmus Alikunhi, 1949, from India. Its four species, however, cannot be recognized; their names have to be treated as not available.
