Abstract

This paper provides an account of twelve intertidal species of hydroids reported from the State of Gujarat, north-west India. Six of them constitute new records for the coast of Gujarat, and four are reported for the first time from waters of India. Also reported for the first time from Indian waters are the genera Zyzzyzus and Nemalecium.
