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 species is new to science.

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.
