Abstract

3ON THE GENUS JUSTITIA HOLTHUIS (DECAPODA, PALINURIDAE), WITH A NOTE ON ALLOMETRIC GROWTH IN PANULIRUS ORNATUS ( FABRICIUS) BY ISABELLA GORDON British Museum (Nat. Hist.), London INTRODUCTION The genus lustitia was established in 1946 by Dr. L. B. Holthuis to receive the species formerly known as Palinurus longimanus H. Milne Edwards, 1837 and its variety mattritianus Miers, 1882, since they differ markedly from the other species of the genus Palinuru.r. References in the literature prior to 1946 to I ustitia lon- gimana and to its variety mauritiana have been given by Holthuis ( 1946, pp. 115- 116). Although no definition of the new genus is included, its chief characters are clearly stated in his key to the determination of the genera of the family Palinuridae on p. 113. In 1955 Kubo described a single dry specimen of a rock lobster new to Japan, to which he gave the name of Nupalirus japonicus n.g. and sp., stating also its close affinities with I ustitia longimana. As soon as I saw his photographs (Kubo, 1955, pls. xii and xiii), they reminded me of a specimen in the British Museum Collection which had come from Mauritius as long ago as 1889
