  • SummaryTwo species of Antarctic acanthonotozomatid amphipods (Echiniphimedia hodgsoni and Maxilliphimedia longipes) have been investigated in regard to their food preference. Examinations of food remains in foreguts and midguts indicate that Echiniphimedia hodgsoni feeds on sponges and Maxilliphimedia longipes ingests Cnidaria. These foregut analyses are supported by a study of the functional morphology of the mouthparts. The structure of the mandibles in particular can be interpreted as an… CONTINUE READING
