dc.description.abstract The benthic fauna of subantarctic Marion and Prince Edward Islands was sampled over the period of 1982-1989 by dredging, scuba-diving and intertidal surveys. This paper comprises illustrated keys for the identification of all Crustacea recorded from the island during this and previous surveys. Summaries are also provided of the depth distributions, abundance and habitats of all species collected during the 1982-1989 surveys. A total of 125 species of Crustacea is now known from the islands, of these 49 are new records for the area including 12 presumed new species. The current fauna comprises 2 new records of Cirripedia (1 unidentified); 71 species of Amphipoda (of which 17 are new records and include 8 presumed new species); 32 species of Isopoda (including 19 new records of which 4 new species); 10 Tanaidacea (8 new records); and 11 Decapoda (of which 4 are new records). The new species are identified to genus and are not formally described in this paper. en_ZA
