Description

Excerpt from The Journal of the Linnean Society, Vol. 22: Zoology Report on the Podophthalmous Crustacea of the Mergui Archipelago, collected for the Trustees of the Indian Museum, Calcutta, by Dr. John Anderson, F.R.S., Superintendent of the Museum. By Dr. J. G. de Man, of Middleburg, Netherlands. (Communicated by Dr. John A-Ndbrson, F.R.S., F.L.S.) [Read 17th June, 1886.] (Plates I.-XIX.) The Crustacea described in the following pages are mostly littoral species. The Collection contains no fewer than 166 species, 38 of which are new to science, i.e. nearly a fourth of the whole number. They are represented by about 1060 specimens, in an excellent state of preservation. 118 species are new to the Fauna of the Bay of Bengal (including Ceylon, the Nicobar Islands, and Singapore), only 48 species in the Collection having been previously recorded from that part of the Indian Ocean. These numbers are highly surprising, as the Bay of Bengal has been explored, years ago, by many naturalists. Large carcinological collections were made in former times by French naturalists on the coast of Coromandel and at Ceylon, and a still larger number of species were collected, in the years 1857-59, by the famous 'Novara' Expedition, at the same localities and especially at the Nicobar Islands.
