Abstract

220 ORNAMENTATION CHANGES ASSOCIATED WITH GROWTH OF FALKLAND ISLAND POPULATIONS OF PARALOMIS GRANULOSA (JACQUINOT, 1842-1847) (DECAPODA, LITHODIDAE) BY R. W. INGLE Department of Zoology, British Museum (Natural History), London, England and C.GARROD Falkland Islands Inshore Fisheries Survcy, Fortoser, Fox Bay East, Falkland Islands Thirty two species have been described of the lithodid genus Paralomis White, 1856. Many are known from original descriptions only and nearly all are deep water inhabitants (see Takeda, 1974; Haig, 1974; Eldredge, 1976; Sakai, 1978; Takeda & Ohta, 1979; Andrade, 1980; Sakai, 1980; Takeda & Miyake, 1980; Kensley, 1981; Macpherson, 1982, 1983).
