P.S. Lyla and S. Ajmal Khan

Tlnee hermit aabs with unequal eyestalks were collected from Vellar estuary. The identity was established as Clibannrius longitarsus (De Haan). This hermit crab regenerates the eyestalk when it is cut distally. But when the eyestalk is cut proximal to the optic ganglia there is no regneration.
