Squilla stridulans WOOD-MASON IN ALCOCK, 1894: 409 [TYPE LOCALITY: ORISSA COAST, INDIA] .—KEMP 1913: 76–80, PL. 5 FIG. 66. Kempina stridulans .— MOOSA 1986: 402–403.—GHOSH 1987: 313.—AHYONG 2001: 266.—AHYONG et al. 2008: 125, FIGS. 99– 100.

Kempella stridulans .—LOw & AHYONG 2010: 68.

Material examined. Tamil Nadu: AM P 100653, 1 female (TL 117 mm), Tuticorin, 22 March 2017 ; ZRC, 1 female (TL 120 mm), Tuticorin, 22 March 2017.

Remarks. The present specimens correspond well to recent accounts of Kempella stridulans (Ahyong et al. 2008) including absence of the median carina on the rostral plate and abdominal spination being within the reported range (submedian 5–6, intermediate 3–6, lateral 1–6, marginal 1–5). The larger specimen of K. stridulans has six teeth on the dactyli of both raptorial claws, and six and seVen teeth in the smaller specimen, similar to occasional Variation reported for Australian specimens of its congener, K. mikado (Ahyong 2001) .
