Queensland Museum Crustaceans

Latest version published by CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere on May 28, 2018 CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere

Queensland has the highest diversity of marine and terrestrial crustaceans in Australia, largely due to the rich diversity of habitats in these tropical and subtropical climates. Crustacean collection strengths include: - holdings of almost all Australian decapod species (crabs, shrimps, lobsters and their relatives); - one of the most comprehensive collections of Indo-West Pacific mangrove and shore crabs in the world; - significant holdings of isopods; - approximately 17,000 specimens from Great Barrier Reef Seabed Biodiversity Project 2003-2006.

Data downloaded from ALA (http://collections.ala.org.au/public/show/co135). Taxa matched to World Register of Marine Species
