    THE present volume relating to Crustacea and Echinodermata collected by Mr. Vanderbilt and deposited in his museum is full of interesting material. Careful descriptions and good figures are given of every form described. The larger crustaceans are already known, but much new matter is added, and among the Caridea there are many new species. These last were mostly taken in coral and include a Leptochela, an Athanas, Alpheus spp., a Coralliocaris, a Thor and a Pontophilus, besides a pontoniid which the author has referred to a new genus which she has named Vanderbiltia. Besides all these new species, many little-known forms are redescribed. There are also two new species of Enphausia. Some isopods and amphipods are included.
