INTRODUCTION Palaemonetes antennarius (H. Milne Edwards, 1837) inhabits fresh and brack- ish waters of the Mediterranean basin. Its distribution includes Dalmatia, Greece, and certain Ionic and Aegean islands as far as Turkey, as well as both sides of the Italian peninsula. It is quite common in calm waters of some major Italian inland lakes (Trasimeno, Bolsena, Garda, and Bracciano), in the lower reaches of rivers (Po, Tiber, and Mincio) and in coastal lagoons http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Crustaceana Brill
