NOTES AND NEWS NOTES ON AN UNUSUAL SPECIMEN OF LAURIDROMIA DEHAANI (RATHBUN, 1923) (DECAPODA, BRACHYURA, DROMIIDAE) FROM HONG KONG BY A.-Y. DAI1) and PETER K. L. NG2) 1) Institute of Zoology, Academia Sinica, Zhongguancun Lu, Beijing 100080, China 2) School of Biological Sciences, National University of Singapore, Kent Ridge, Singapore 119260, Republic of Singapore The large sponge crab, Lauridromia dehaani (Rathbun, 1923), is a common species which has been reported from Madagascar to Australia (Dai & Yang, 1991; McLay, 1993; see Guinot et al., 1995, on its carrying behaviour). Recently, through the courtesy of Tony Chiu of the Environment Protection Department of the Hong Kong Government, we obtained a male dromiid specimen from Hong Kong which had several very peculiar features, especially with regards to its last two pairs of walking legs. Although we identify this specimen with L. dehaani, we felt that a short note was warranted to document its unusual features. Lauridromia dehaani (Rathbun, 1923) (fig. 1) Material examined. - 1 male, carapace width 27.0 mm, carapace length 24.2 mm (Institute of Zoology, Academia Sinica, Beijing), station number 028, subtidal waters off eastern Hong Kong, coll. Environment Protection Department of Hong Kong, 1990s. Remarks. - McLay
