While dredging the epifauna, four living adults of T. adenensis species were discovered in Nizampatnam Bay, Bay of Bengal, East coast of India. Re-description of the species along with its geographical distribution were presented in this paper. This record will contribute to the molluscan checklist of Indian seas.
