Article
Full-text available
Petrolisthes virgiliussp. nov. from the Caribbean Sea of Colombia is described. The new species resembles P. tonsorius morphologically but differs from it principally by its color and habitat. Petrolisthes tonsorius is brown or blueish brown and occurs under intertidal boulders strongly exposed to water movement. Petrolisthes virgiliussp. nov. is p...

Polyonyxsocialissp. n. from the South China Sea of Vietnam is described. The new species was collected in a previous study that compared the vertebrate and invertebrate symbiont communities living in the tubes of two syntopic species of the polychaete genus Chaetopterus . Polyonyxsocialissp. n. inhabits the tubes of the smaller polychaete species a...

Aliaporcellanaspongicolasp. n. from the Philippines and Indonesia is described. The new species has been frequently photographed by divers because of its striking coloration, but has not been described yet. Aliaporcellanaspongicolasp. n. is in fact a widespread commensal of barrel sponges of the genus Xestospongia and other sponges. Morphological c...

A new species of porcellanid crab from the southern Caribbean Sea is described. Pachycheles tuerkayi n. sp. has been confused with P. serratus (Benedict, 1901) since the 1950s because the two species are morphologically and ecologically similar and have overlapping distributions in the southern Caribbean. P. tuerkayi n. sp. is restricted to the coa...

A description of Maritrema magdalenae n. sp. from Limnodromus griseus, collected on the Isla de Salamanca (Northern Colombia) is given. Because of morphological differences to all known species, M. magdalenae is considered to be new.
Article
Full-text available
Thirteen species of porcelain crabs are reported from Isla de Providencia (Old Providence Island), including eight new records from the island. Petrolisthes dissimulatus Gore, 1983 is reported for the first time after the original description, extending its known range to the western part of the Caribbean.
Article
Sixteen species of porcelain crabs are described from the Gulf of Urabá and Santa Marta including Neopisosoma curacaoense which presents a new record from Colombia. With the tatter species the total number of porcelain crabs reported from the Caribbean Coast of Colombia reaches 31. The distributions of the species of the upper intertidal is describ...

Para determinar si existen variaciones en los parámetros de crecimiento entre dos especies con relaciones ecológicas y filogenéticas, se utilizó la herramienta ELEFAN I. Con base en un muestreo de 11 meses, se estimó la longitud asintótica (L∞) y la constante de crecimiento (K) a partir de las distribuciones de tallas de dos especies de crustáceos,...
Article
Full-text available
To determine if there was variation in growth parameters between two ecologically and phylogenetically related species, the ELEFAN I application was used (FISAT II FAO-ICLARM). Based on an eleven months of sampling, the asymptotic length (L ∞) and growth constant (K) were estimated from size distributions of two species of crustaceans, Petrolisthes...
Article
During a survey of the coastal biodiversity of the Saudi Arabian Red Sea, four species of callianassid ghost shrimps were collected: Gilvossius bouvieri (Nobili, 1904), Neocallichirus mucronatus (Stahl, 1862a), Podocallichirus madagassus (Lenz & Richters, 1880), and Callianidea typa H. Milne Edwards, 1837. Of these, N. mucronatus is recorded from t...
Article
A mangrove-inhabiting porcelain crab, Enosteoides philippinensis sp. nov., is described based on material collected from Palawan Island, the Philippines. It is the fifth species of the genus and different from its congeners in having an extremely setose body, one to five spines on the proximal half of the outer margin of the chela, two lobes on the...
Article
Petrolisthes militaris (Heller, 1862) is redescribed on the basis ofmaterial from the Nationaal Natuurhistorisch Museum-Naturalis, Leiden, and the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris. A different morphotype, consistently showing a different distributional and ecological range from that of P. militaris, is here described as P. holthuisi n. s...
Article

The porcellanid crabs from the Red Sea are revised based on museum collections. A complete compilation of all species known from the Red Sea is presented, including four new records of species for that region. Petrolisthes aegyptiacus n. sp. is described on the basis of an old collection of porcellanids from the Museum für Naturkunde, Stuttgart. Th...

Entre marzo y noviembre de 1997 se comparó la variación estacional de la relación nitrógeno/fósforo y de la sucesión de la comunidad fitoplanctónica en un lago conectado directamente al río Main y en otro lago sin conexión directa. Asociado a bajas relaciones N/P (10-5:1) se observó un crecimiento masivo de cianofitas en el verano, mientras que la...
