Abstract: Live specimens of the opisthobranch mollusc, Umbraculum umbraculum were collected off Tuticorin, Southeast coast of India. Earlier literature mentions only the name of this species with photos of the shell without any description. This makes it difficult to characterize the species from another one Tylodina corticalis, which has similar shell shape. This is the first record of occurrence of live specimens along the Indian coast. The proximity of occurrence of the species near the Tuticorin Port area substantiates the possibility of its entry from some other place.
