Material examined. Tamil Nadu: AM P 100654, 1 female (TL 152 mm), Tuticorin, 22 March 2017 ; ZRC, 1 female (TL 150 mm), Tuticorin, 22 March 2017; ZRC, 3 males (TL 102–148 mm), 1 female (TL 105 mm), Chennai, coll. N.K. Ng et al., 23 NoVember 2004.

Remarks. Harpiosquilla indica was described by Manning (1969) from southern India (Mandapam Camp), and subsequently reported from eastern India (Waltair) and the Andaman Sea (Ghosh 1976). Ahyong et al. (2008) showed H. philippina to be a junior synonym of H. indica and extended its range to Taiwan. Harpiosquilla indica is readily distinguished from other species of the genus by the presence of nine instead of seVen or eight teeth on the dactylus of the raptorial claw.

Distribution. India to the Andaman Sea, Indonesia, the Philippines and Taiwan; shallow subtidal (Ahyong et al. 2008).
