Abstract
    An ecological survey of the sandy beaches of the west coast of India revealed an important population of eurydicid isopods (Eurydice peraticis Jones; E.indicis sp,nov.) of which one sp is new to science. The systematics of these isopods is described, and their distribution on the Arabian Sea coast and the Indian beaches is discussed. Differences in their horizontal and vertical distribution on the beaches are explained in relation to the prevailing environmental conditions, of which exposure is the most important.
