This dataset is from a paper by Mueller (1990). where new species and records of coral reef inhabiting Caprellidae from Bora Bora and Moorea, Society Islands are described.
New species and records are presented for the amphipod family Caprellidae from coral reefs at Bora Bora and Moorea, Society Islands. Caprellina bispinosa n. sp. and Fallotritella polynesica n. sp. are described. Notes on the habitat preference of the other species, Hemiaegina minuta Mayer, 1890 and Metaprotella sandalensis Mayer, 1898 are also given. M. sandalensis is redescribed with particular reference to its intraspecific variability.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 23 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
