CRUSTACEOS ANFIPODOS (GAMMARIDEA) COLECTADOS EN LAS COSTAS DEL CARIBE COLOMBIANO, AL SUR DE CARTAGENA

Manuel Ortiz, Rafael Lemaitre

Abstract


During studies of the crustacean fauna from the Caribbean coast of Colombia, a number of samples were obtained in March and July of 1991 at various localities south of Cartagena. A qualitative study of the samples revealed the existence of 43 species of amphipods, 25 of which (58%) had not been previously reported for this coast. A systematic list is presented as well as a description of the substrate where the species were found. The majority were collected from seagrass-bed habitats. Considering that sampling was limited almost exclusively to these habitats, the number of species found is high when compared to other areas in the Caribbean.
