Atyidae of Ceylon - I ATYIDAE OF CEYLON - I BY K. D. ARUDPRAGASAM and H. H. COSTA Department of Zoology, University of Ceylon, Colombo, Ceylon INTRODUCTION No comprehensive study has hitherto been made of the Atyid shrimps of the island of Ceylon. A few species have previously been recorded or described by different workers at different times. The species already recorded are the following: Caridina .rizaghalen.ri.r Ortmann, 1894; Caridina pristis J.

The present authors have begun a detailed study of the island's Atyidae with a view to recording and describing the species present as well as studying their distribution and natural history.

A few species have previously been recorded or described by different workers at different times. The species already recorded are the following: Caridina .rizaghalen.ri.r Ortmann, 1894; Caridina pristis J.

The present authors have begun a detailed study of the island's Atyidae with a view to recording and describing the species present as well as studying their distribution and natural history. This paper is based on material collected by them in Colombo and Negombo, and in the central hilly regions.
