Abstract

80 eastern Bay of Plenty on the 7th March 1962. Pachygrapsus marinus was described by Rathbun (1914) from the open sea west of Lower California, 23° 49' N 127° 50' W. Four specimens were also collected from the coast of Oregon. Chace ( 1951 ) recorded specimens from drift in the Hawaiian Islands and Edmondson (1959: 169) substantiated this tecord. The New Zealand and Kermadec Island specimens agree with the description and figures of Pachygrapsus marinus given by Chace (1951). The species is now known from two extremities of the Pacific Ocean indicating that it is almost certainly widely distributed throughout the Pacific. The writer has recently examined crabs collected from floating debris around Fiji but has seen no specimens of P. marinus amongst this material. LITERATURE CITED CHACE, F. A., 1951.
