REVIEWS NASIMA M. TIRMIZI & WAQUAR JAVED, 1993. Indian Ocean galatheids (Crustacea: Anomura): i-ii, 1-147, 60 text-figs. Marine Reference Collection and Resource Centre University of Karachi, Karachi - 75270, Pakistan. The title, the fact that the book is separately issued, and the arrangement of the text, at first give the impression that this is a monograph of the Indian Ocean Galatheidae. A closer scruntiny of the publication shows that this impression is false and that it deals practically only with the species collected by the "Anton Bruun" during the International Indian Ocean Expeditions (IIOE) 1963-1964. A morphological introduction has been dispensed with and the technical terms used are shown on thc very instructive diagrammatic fig. I to 3. Of all the species dealt with good and detailed figures arc provided. The new species each have a good description. The other species all have a chapter "Descriptive remarks" which often is longer than the description of the new species. All this makes the work very valuable. Of course there are also some critical remarks. I miss in the introduction a clear statement of the scope of this book and of the material on which it is based. Only in
