Publication Date


A small collection of unidentified decapod crustaceans from the island Santa Cruz de las Galapagos ("Indefatigable"), Galapagos Archipelago, Ecuador, located in the holdings of the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences, Brussels (RBINS), Belgium, was examined. A total of 63 lots containing 21 species was found, all collected in January and February, 1964, near the Darwin Station. All species had previously been reported from the Galapagos Archipelago and represent about 9.3% of the marine, shallow-water decapod fauna reported for the islands.
