Abstract

The Opisthobranch fauna of Gujarat is among the least studied molluscs. Field surveys were undertaken along the Gulf of Kutch over a period of four months under the All India Co-ordinated Project on Taxonomy (AICOPTAX – Mollusca) funded by the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India, and supported by the Gujarat State Forest Department and Marine National Park authorities. 33 species belonging to 19 families were recorded, of which 21 are new records to Gujarat and 13 are new records to Indian coast.
