    Journal Article
    Description
    Out of the 24 species of marine molluscs included in Schedule I and IV of the Wildlife (Protection) Act (WPA) of India, 19 species were recorded from the coastal waters of Lakshadweep.  A recent survey conducted by the authors recorded the presence of 14 scheduled molluscs in Lakshadweep.  Scheduled species such as Placuna placenta (recorded from Kavaratti) and Tudicla spirillus (recorded from Kalpeni) are new records from Lakshadweep.  The paper provides details for taxonomic identification of scheduled molluscs and discusses strategies for conservation of scheduled molluscs of Lakshadweep.

    A note on the first registered Mollusca in the National Zoological Collections at the Zoological Survey of India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Museum collections are important refer­ence system for the study of extinct and extant species. The voucher specimens collected during various faunistic field surveys and explorations pre­served and deposited in natural history museums help in identifying species, their habitat, study on their ecology and behavior and tracking the historical background of such collections. The NZC present in different sections of Zoological Survey of India have been acquired from the Museum of the Asiatic Society of Bengal, the Zoological section of the Indian Mu­seum and collections through various surveys since early part of 19th century. During the famous marine expedition by Investigators, apart from naturalists, many other private donors including ship captains, geologists and physicians who have contributed to the Indian Museum through their personal collections. This paper deals with such a collection made by a Branch Pilot and which also happen to be the first registered mollusca collection of the Indian Museum now under the custody of the National Zoological Collection at the Zoological Survey of India, Kolkata.
