Crustacea of Panglao 2004

Category : research

Peter Ng, Joelle Lai and Tan Swe Hee spearheaded the collection and curation of crustaceans collected during a scientific survey on the marine biodiversity of Panglao, Bohol.

The core phase of this project took place between 26th May and 10th July 2004, and was organised by the University of San Carlos, Cebu in partnership with the French National Museum of Natural History (NMNH).

Funded by the Total Foundation, the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the ASEAN Regional Centre for Biodiversity Conservation, PANGLAO 2004 involved scientists, volunteers and students from 17 countries.

The team collected specimens by trawling, dredging, coral brushing, sea bottom suctioning, diving, traps and traditional fishing methods such as tangle nets and lumun lumun.

In total, some 1200 species of crustaceans were documented and photographed, and more await to be discovered. Several new genera and species were recorded and the largest was a Parthenopid crab of the genus Pseudolambrus, caught by traps just off the beach at a depth of 25-30m.
