The behavioral sensitivities of five species of deep-sea crustaceans (order Decapoda: Acanthephyra cur- tirostris, A. smithi, Notostomus gibbosus, Janicella spina- cauda and Oplophorus gracilirostris) to near-UV and blue- green light were studied during a research cruise off the coast of Hawaii in 1993. Two of the five species have elec- trophysiologically-measured spectral sensitivity peaks at 400 and 500 nm, while the remaining three species have a single sensitivity peak at 490 to 500 nm.
