The small collection of Caprellids referred to in the following
notes was obtained on the eastern coast of Tasmania in
April, 1914.
The species dealt with are as follows :—
Dodecas decaentrum, Stebbing.
Orthoprotella australis (Haswell)
Caprella aequilibra, Say.
The collection is of interest since it contains a representative
of the small genus Dodecas, D. decacentrum, Stebbing
and Haswell's Orthoprotella australis, both of which are here
recorded for the first time from Tasmania. Caprella
aequdihra, Say, is cosmopolitan in its distribution and has
previously been recorded from these waters.
Altogether twenty eight species (four of which are undetermined)
belonging to the family Caprellidae are now
known to occur in Australian and Tasmanian waters.
