Raffles Bulletin of Zoology, Supplement No. 1 (1995) pdf available

Category : pub

10 May 2007 - the pdf of Raffles Bulletin of Zoology, Supplement No. 1 (1995) is now available. [Link]

When the pdfs of the Raffles Bulletin of Zoology were created, we did not scan the supplements as these were lengthy and specialised tomes that most specialists would buy since it'd be value for money.

However there had been considerable demand for Supplement No. 1, and Murari P Tapaswi and colleagues at the National Institute of Oceanography, Goa, India offered to make a quick scan of the documents and return us the pdf. We gratefully accepted, of course.

A few days ago, thanks to an email request from Tay Mei Lin (a grad student at the School of Biological Sciences, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand), Swee Hee and I were prompted to dig out that pdf and post it online. Although the black and white images did not scan well, the text and line drawings in the 5.8MB pdf are excellent and will be useful to researchers.

So here it is: Wee, D.P.C. & P. K. L. Ng. 1995. Swimming crabs of the genera Charybdis De Haan, 1833, and Thalamita Latreille, 1829 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura: Portunidae) from Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore. The Raffles Bulletin of Zoology, Supplement No. 1. Pp. 1-128

What do the crabs look like?

For the non-crabby people, here's a peek at the two genera, courtesy of Joelle Lai whom I pried away from a barbeque to send over two photos by C. W. Lin (Chan Tin Yam's nominee from National Taiwan Ocean University, ROC). These were taken during the Panglao expedition that Joelle sailed with - she certainly picked out some lovely examples!
