94 ON THE PRESENCE OF ALBUNEA STEINITZI HOLTHUIS IN THE NORTHERN ARABIAN SEA (DECAPODA, HIPPIDEA) BY NASIMA M. TIRMIZI Invertebrate Reference Museum, University of Karachi, Pakistan Two moults of Albunea .rteinitzi Holthuis, 1958, have recently been collected from the Karachi coast. The species was so far unknown from this area. The moult collected on 23 November 1976 at Manora Island is of a small specimen, it measures 4.5 mm in carapace length and 5.5 mm in breadth. The large one, col- lected on 5 July 1977 near Bulleji, is with the posterior margin of the carapace damaged, the anterior margin measures 21 mm in width. The moults are complete enough to show all the necessary details for identification. There are, however, noticed some individual variation as given below: In the large moult the rostral spine is rather small, whereas the spines on each half of the lateral margin are stout and somewhat swollen near the base (fig. 1). In the small moult these spines are slender (fig. 2). Further, the eyes are less than twice the maximum width (1.08 : 0.60 mm) in the small moult (fig. 2) and more (4.7 : 1.9 mm) in the larger one
