Fauna of the Chilka Lake : the Polyzoa of the lake and of brackish water in the Gangetic Delta

  • Eight species of Polyzoa ilave been found in brackish water on the coasts of India, but of these only three occur, so far as we know, in the Chilka Lake. A fourth was abundant some years ago in small pools of brackish water near its inner.shore, but has now disappeared and has not been taken in the lake itself. A list of the eight species will be found in the Table of Contents on the opposite page. One half of these species are apparently endemic in estuarine tracts, maritime swamps and lagoons in India, while the other half are cosmopolitan or at any rate very widely distributed. The two series may be tabulated thus:· ENDEMIC INDIAN SPECIES. Membranipora bengalensis, Victorella bengalensis, Loxosomatoides colonialis, Loxosomatoides laevis. WIDELY DISTRIBUTED SPECIES. Membranipora hippopus, Bowerbankia caudata, Alcyonidium mytili, Barentsia discreta. ...
