Recently we have recorded (Jones and Kumaran, 1964) the occurrence of the fishes of the family Schindleriidae in the Indian Ocean for the first time based on the collections made from the Laccadive Archipelago. Most of the specimens were collected from small country crafts while a few were collected on board the Research Vessel Kalava during her cruises in the Laccadive Sea. All specimens were obtained during night time with the help of plankton nets and close meshed dip nets from the surface along with larval fishes, crustaceans etc., which were\ud attracted by light. Of the 81 specimens of Schindleria praematura all were in good state of preservation except 23 and of the 8 specimens of S.pietschmanni 5 were in good condition. A brief account of the studies on the collection is given in this paper
