  • Orchomene limodes, new species (Amphipoda: Lysianassidae), recently discovered in Scripps Canyon, California, is described and compared to other species within this genus. Intraspecific analysis of morphological variation was performed in order to determine which characters would be appropriate for the description. Thirty-five potentially diagnostic characters were grouped into three types: qualitative, meristic, and morphometric, and analyzed for variation between individuals. The characters… CONTINUE READING
