Numerous specimens of the majid spider crab, Encephaloides armstrongi, were sampled from six stations (populations) between 150 and 650 m depth, on the continental slope off the coast of Oman. This extended the known geographic and bathymetric range of E. armstrongi, which is now known to occur along the continental margins of the northern Indian Ocean from the western coast of Burma to the coast of Oman. This band-like distribution is contiguous to the oxygen minimum zone in this region.
