This scarce antiquarian e-book is a facsimile reprint of the unique. because of its age, it might probably include imperfections similar to marks, notations, marginalia and mistaken pages. simply because we think this paintings is culturally vital, we have now made it to be had as a part of our dedication for shielding, maintaining, and selling the world's literature in cheap, prime quality, glossy versions which are precise to the unique paintings.

Stegopontonia commensalis Nobili, male; Anse Étoile, Mahé, Seychelle Islands. b. Reduction of rostral lamina. In unmodified species the rostrum generally distinctly exceeds the antennular peduncle and, in some freeliving species, such as Periclimenes tenuipes Borradaile, it is greatly elongated. Many commensal species show a decrease in the size of the rostrum. All stages are shown in Periclimenaeus, ranging from a normally well-developed rostrum to a short process that fails to exceed the eyes.
