Carinosquilla spinosa Ahyong & Naiyanetr, 2002

( Fig. 2B View FIGURE 2 )

Squilla carinata .— INGLE 1963: 17–18, FIGS. 6–8, 10–12, 67.—MANNING 1968: 21–23, FIG. 6.

Carinosquilla carinata .—TIRMIZI & MANNING 1968: 4 [ NOT C. carinata (SERèNE, 1950)].

Carinosquilla spinosa AHYONG & NAIYANETR, 2002 : 290–292, FIG. 1 View FIGURE1 [TYPE LOCALITY: ANDAMAN SEA SW OF PHUKET, THAILAND].

Material examined. Tamil Nadu: DABFUK, 1 male (TL 92 mm), off Muttom, commercial trawl, 22 March 2016.

Remarks. The specimen lacks both raptorial claws, but otherwise agrees in all respects with the type account of C. spinosa from the Andaman Sea (Ahyong & Naiyanetr 2002). Carinosquilla spinosa is the Indian Ocean counterpart of C. carinata from the South China Sea, and, as with Odontodactylus japonicus (aboVe), was preViously recorded from the eastern margin of the Indian Ocean (Andaman Sea off Thailand) and the far western Indian Ocean ( Madagascar, Red Sea), but not from intermediate localities. The present record of C. spinosa from southwestern India bridges the gap in the preViously ‘disjunct’ distribution.

Distribution. Madagascar and the Red Sea to the Andaman Sea; now from India; 30–40 m (Ahyong & Naiyanetr 2002).
