    Description
    Symbiotic polychaete Gastrolepidia clavigera Schmarda (Phyllodocida: Polynoidae) has been documented based on the specimen collected from the intertidal area of Agatti island, Lakshadweep, India. G. clavigera is found to be associated with the variety of holothurians such as Stichopus chloronotus, Holothuria atra and Holothuria sp. The percentage occurrence of G. clavigera individuals on the symbiotic host Holothuria sp. was 41.9% followed H. atra 38.7% and Stichopus chloronotus 19.3% respectively. The present contribution also provides morphological diagnoses of the collected specimen as well as range extension of the species.
