MUNIDOPSIS ALBATROSSAE, A NEW SPECIES OF DEEP-SEA GALATHEIDAE (DECAPODA, ANOMURA) FROM THE EASTERN PACIFIC OCEAN BY WILLIS E. PEQUEGNAT and LINDA H. PEQUEGNAT Department of Oceanography, Texas A & M University, College Station, Texas 77843, U.S.A. While studying the deep-sea Galatheoidea collected from the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea by the R/V "Alaminos" of Texas A & M University and the R/V "Oregon" of the National Marine Fisheries Service, Pascagoula, Mississippi (Pequegnat & Pequegnat, 1970, and Pequegnat & Pequegnat, 1971), the authors discovered two specimens of the giant galatheid, l11ttnidopJis Jiundi Sivertsen & Holthuis, 1956, which were collected for the first time from the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea by the R/V "Alaminos". During visits to the U.S. National Museum of Natural History in connection with the above studies, the authors encountered another huge Munidopsis, closely related to M. Jundi, from the "Albatross" 1911 collections in the eastern Pacific Ocean. A detailed study was made of the "Albatross" specimen in order to clearly distinguish it from the closely allied Atlantic species, M. Hindi, resulting in the description given below. The authors are grateful to Fenner A. Chace, Jr. and Henry B. Roberts for their cooperation
