Abstract: Routine field survey in the Palk Bay landings yielded a single ovigerous specimen of Pseudoporcellanella manoliensis after a gap of nearly 55 years in Indian coastal waters. Rediscovery of this species in ovigerous condition from the Palk Bay reassures that the population still exist in these ecosystems since its description by Sankarankutty in 1961.
