Northward Extension of the Range of the Eastern Pacific Deep-Water Asellote Isopod Storthyngura... NORTHWARD EXTENSION OF THE RANGE OF THE EASTERN PACIFIC DEEP-WATER ASELLOTE ISOPOD STORTHYNGURA PULCHRA (HANSEN, 1897) BY JOHN C. MARKHAM Bermuda Biological Station for Research, St. George's West, Bermuda INTRODUCTION Abundant material of a deep-water isopod collected at 8 localities off the coasts of Oregon and Washington has proved to belong to the species Storthyngura pulchra (Hansen, 1897), previously known from no farther north than Central America. This has permitted further description of this species and comments on its occurrence. The material has been placed in the collections of the British Mu- seum (Natural History) (designated BMNH), the National Museum of Canada (NMC), the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution (USNM), the Rijksmuseum van Natuurlijke Historie, Leiden (RMNHL) and the Zoological Museum, University of Copenhagen (ZMC). ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The material was kindly made available by Dr. A. G. Carey, Jr., of the School of Oceanography, Oregon State University, who had made the collections with the financial support of the United States Atomic Energy Commission under contract AT(45-1 ) 2227 - Task Agreement No. 12, and the Office of Naval Research under contract N00014-67-C-0369-0009. Support for the study was provided in part by an Exxon Corporation Fellowship administered through Crustaceana Brill
