      Fifty three freshwater habitats located in and around Bangalore (South India) were surveyed for studying the distribution and abundance of prawns. The survey indicated that, the habitats were rich in prawn fauna, harbouring one species of Palaemonid,Macrobrachium lanchesteri (de Man) and 3 species of Atyids,Caridina nilotica (Roux) varbengalensis, Caridina rajadhari (Bouvier) andCaridina weberi varsumatrensis (de Man).Macrobrachium lanchesteri andCaridina nilotica were more widely distributed thanCaridina rajadhari andCaridina weberi. The results throw light on the pattern of distribution and species composition of these prawns in relation to the nature of the habitats.
