Grooming behaviour and the morphology of grooming appendages in the endemic South American crab genus Aegla (Decapoda, Anomura, Aeglidae)
TLDR
Grooming behaviour and general morphology of grooming appendages in aeglids resemble those of their marine relatives in the Anomura rather than those of other freshwater decapods, which supports Bauer's (1981) contention that grooming may serve as an indicator of phyletic affinity.
A Comparative Study of Morphology and Ontogeny in Juvenile Stages of Four Western Atlantic Xanthoid Crabs (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura)
TLDR
A discriminant analysis based upon setation of selected mouthparts and spination of the fifth pereopod dactyl was used to demonstrate quantitatively ontogenetic divergence in phena of the four species, reflecting the minimum expression of adult specializations in the early crab stages.
Comparison of haloacetic acids in the environment of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
TLDR
The results indicate that concentrations of HAAs are greatest in the industrialized Northern Hemisphere but there are significant amounts of these compounds in the less industrialized Southern Hemisphere.
A new species of the shrimp genus Chorocaris Martin & Hessler, 1990 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Bresiliidae) from hydrothermal vent fields along the Mid-Atlantic ridge
TLDR
A new species of the caridean genus Chorocaris, C. fortunata, is described from the Lucky Strike hydrothermal vent field along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge in the vicinity of the Azores, differing from the two previously known members of the genus in having an acute conical prominence on the lower angle of the orbit.
Chrysaora achlyos, a Remarkable New Species of Scyphozoan from the Eastern Pacific.
An enormous new species of scyphozoan jellyfish, Chrysaora achlyos, is described from the eastern Pacific. The description is based primarily on color photographs and video footage of living animals
Description and comparison of major foregut ossicles in hydrothermal vent crabs
TLDR
Major foregut ossicles of hydrothermal vent crabs were dissected and examined during the summer of 1996 from specimens housed at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, revealing some similarities between bythograeids and some xanthids, but it is difficult to ascertain whether some of the many spine and setal types in the bythogsraeidForegut are unique or even unusual compared to those of other crab families.
Nebalia Gerkenae, A New Species Of Leptostracan (Crustacea : Malacostraca : Phyllocarida) From The Bennett Slough Region Of Monterey Bay, California
TLDR
A new species of leptostracan crustacean, Nebalia gerkenae, is described from Bennett Slough, Monterey County, California, which is similar to N. hessleri from deeper waters off La Jolla, California and contains sexually dimorphic features.
American species of the deep-sea shrimp genus Bythocaris (Crustacea, Decapoda, Hippolytidae)
TLDR
The present paper reviews the distribution of the genus Bythocaris in the western Atlantic and redescribes B. nana and provides descriptions of three new species collected on the east coast of the United States ofTJacksonville, Florida, thus increasing to six the number of species known from eastern North America and increasing to 14The number of known species of Byhocaris.
THE PEA CRAB ORTHOTHERES HALIOTIDIS NEW SPECIES (DECAPODA : BRACHYURA : PINNOTHERIDAE) IN THE AUSTRALIAN ABALONE HALIOTIS ASININA LINNAEUS, 1758 AND H ALIOTIS SQUAMATA REEVE, 1846 (GASTROPODA :
TLDR
A new species of pinnotherid crab, Orthotheres haliotidis, is described from two species of Australian abalone, Haliotw asin'ma Linnaeus, 1758, and H. squamata Reeve, 1846, which is the second record of the predominantly American genus Orthothere in the westem Pacific.
