Material examined. Tamil Nadu: ZRC, 1 male (TL 89 mm), PaZhayar Fish Landing, Nagapattinam, TN 170911 View Materials /2, coll. R. Lasley, B.Y. Lee & N.K. Ng, 17 Sep 2011 ; AM P 100652, 1 male (TL 127 mm), 1 female (TL 131 mm), Tuticorin, 22 March 2017; ZRC, 1 male (TL 120 mm), 2 females (TL 106–111 mm), Tuticorin, 22 March 2017.

Remarks. Morphological Variation in the present series of E. woodmasoni is within the reported range (Manning 1978b; Ahyong 2001; Ahyong et al. 2008). The abdominal carinae are spined as follows: submedian 5– 6, intermediate 3–6, lateral (1)2–6, marginal 1–5. The lobe between the terminal spines of the uropodal protopod is usually rounded (pointed on one side in one specimen), the anterior lobe of thoracic somite 6 is usually slender, and the anterior lobe of thoracic somite 7 is blunt (angular in one specimen). As reported for Taiwanese specimens (Ahyong et al. 2008), the oVerall colour pattern ranges from uniform to diffusely banded.

Erugosquilla woodmasoni has been widely reported from India, along both eastern and western coasts (Kemp 1913; Manning 1978b; Shanbogue 1969, 1986; Ghosh 1987; Lyla 1997; Ahyong 2001).

Distribution. India to Australia, the South China Sea and Japan; intertidal to at least 70 m (Ahyong & Naiyanetr 2002).
