Abstract: Opisthobranchia (Phylum: Mollusca) are one of the least studied groups in India, and very little is known from remotely located islands like Nicobar. Recent marine faunistic surveys conducted at Nicobar Group of Islands in the intertidal and subtidal zones revealed the presence of four opisthobranchs viz. Phanerophthalmus smaragdinus (Ruppell and Leuckart, 1828), Dendrodoris nigra (Stimpson, 1855), Phyllidiopsis krempfi Pruvot-Fol, 1957 and Herviella mietta Marcus & Burch, 1965 which are herein reported as new distributional records to Nicobar group of Islands and morphological descriptions of all the four reported species are enumerated.
