Abstract

The contribution is an accumulated collection of observations on Decapoda from the western Pacific Ocean region, notably eastern Australia. Included are several interesting additions to the Australian fauna, arguments in support of the relegation of certain species to the synonymy of earlier established names, and notes on some newly acquired material which serve to ratify the presence in Australian waters of early recorded species. In the illustrations of M edaeus haswelli and of the carapace of Manella spinipes are seen some interesting results of a photographic technique having great possibilities with subjects of small size. The originals of these were made by Mr. H. Hughes, A.R.P.S., of the Museum staff, with the aid of a two and half inch focal length lens and critically arranged lighting.
