AMPHIPODS FROM AN ABYSSAL TRAP SET IN THE NORTH PACIFIC GYRE BY ERIC SHULENBERGER Scripps Institution of Oceanography, La Jolla, California 92037, U.S.A. and J. LAURENS BARNARD Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D. C. 20560, U.S.A. INTRODUCTION In June 1973, two baited traps set on sea-bottom in 5700 m at 28°N 1 5 5 °W, captured nearly 2000 gammaridean amphipods of 5 species. Two species of Paralicella Chevreux and one of Orchomene Boeck, plus specimens of Eurythenes giylliJ (Lichtenstein) and Cyclocai7's sp. were recovered. The amphipods here described are all members of the family Lysianassidae, a taxon containing over 100 genera, and of which numerous species occur in the deep sea. The two trapsets together netted 220 Pärcllicellä caperesca n. sp., 20 P,-ti-alicell(i tenuipes Chevreux, 1551 Orchomene gerulicorbiJ n. sp., one Eurythenes grylli/J (Lichtenstein) (80-100 mm long, badly damaged) and one CyclocariJ sp. Traps baited with bonito were sent down in an area where Hessler, Isaacs & Mills (1972) had photographed several individuals of a giant (over 30 cm) lysianassid amphipod; they used a baited time-lapse photographic arrangement. Because of a rapid response to bait and a willingness of these animals to enter trap-like bait containers, we felt that it
