|Abstract:||A first record of Fulvia nienkeae ter Poorten, 2012 from Indian waters at Vishakhapatnam harbour is reported and its range was extended within Central Indo-Pacific to Bay of Bengal. Counting the present record, the total number of species of the genus Fulvia Gray, 1853 from India is raised to 4. The newly reported species was compared with another morphological close species, Fulvia australis (G.B. Sowerby II, 1834).|
