REDESCRIPTION OF ARCHICOIVCHOECIA STRIATA MÜLLER (OSTRACODA, HALOCYPRIDIDAE) AND ITS DISTRIBUTION IN THE NORTHERN INDIAN OCEAN BY JACOB GEORGE Bavens Studio, Cochin-682011, India INTRODUCTION Milller's (1894) genus Archic-onchoecia includes 4 species, namely, A. cucullata (Brady), A. ventricosa M3lIer, A. stri'at(i Miiller and A. cuneata Miiller, the original descriptions of which are incomplete. Poulsen (1969) redescribed A. cucullata and A. ventri<ioJa from the "Dana" material. Leveau ( 1969) has reported the occurrence of A. striat,i in the Arabian Sea without any descriptions of the species. So the present material is utilized to redescribe the species along with details of distribution in the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal (fig. 16). Samples (I.O.B.C., 1969) collected during the International Indian Ocean Expedition, with the Indian Ocean Standard Net (Currie, 1962) in a uniform manner from 200 m to the surface from the northern Indian Ocean, form the basis of this study. Relative length of the limbs given are percentages of carapace length.
