Some stake net collections from Thevara and Mulavukad within the Cochin backwater region (S.W. India) procured five specimens of an undescribed species of Hexapus De Haan, H. (Hexapus) estuarinus n. sp. A perusal of literature has indicated that Alcock (1900) described another species of Hexapodinae from the Bay of Bengal (Lambdophallus sexpe.r). Hexapus sexpes (Fabricius) is also reported to have been collected from India. The substratum at the place of collection is covered with silt and clay and the morphological features such as the reduced eyes and the thick fringes of hairs on either sides of the inhalent opening of the branchial chamber above the base of chelipeds indicate that the species is well adapted to such an environment.
