Abstract: Although Hydroidolinae are abundant and ecologically important in Pakistan, their study appears to be lacking. The genus Lensia has 37 species, which are found all over the world. It is the most diverse genus of the Hydroidolinae. Only five species have been recorded in Pakistani waters. However, three species, Lensia meteori (Leloup, 1934), L. hardy Totton, 1941 and L. havock Totton, 1941 are new occurrence of Shah Bunder creek, Indus deltaic area. An identification key and morphological description of these three species are presented in this study.
