Elysia bangtawaensis has been reported from India, contributing towards biodiversity. Ecological observations revealed its exclusive association to the mangrove swamp from the midreaches of the Mandovi estuary, Goa, India. Predominant occurrence in the mesohaline zone of the estuary indicates its preference for lower salinity. The present findings encourage further understanding regarding ecological adaptation and biotechnological potential of E. bangtawaensis
