The Crustacea of Devon and Cornwall


STUDENTS of British carcinology owe their thanks to Dr. Norman and Dr. Scott for the first appearance of a volume embracing the wide field of our indigenous crustacean faunt, as hitherto recorded in the Devon and Cornwall area. Dr. Norman's researches in this district, extending over a period of more than fifty.years, are too well known to need mention here, and the publication of his records is a welcome addition to our literature. The introduction contains some interesting comparative tables on the distribution of species north and south relative to the area with which the work is concerned. The body of the work, comprises an enumeration of the species, with synonymy and records of occurrence, and occasional descriptive notes, with twenty-four plates.
