Euphausiid, Stomatopod and Leptostracan crustaceans

The Euphausiid, Stomatopod and Leptostracan crustaceans Synopsis covers three small orders of crustaceans within subclass Malacostraca as follows.

  • Euphausiids (16 British species).
  • Stomatopods (2 British species).
  • Leptostracans (4 British species).

Synopses of the British Fauna is a series of identification guides. Each volume in the series provides a detailed account of a group of animals. They bridge the gap between standard field guides and the more specialised monograph or treatise. Since 1993 the the Field Studies Council has published these guides on behalf of the Linnean Society.

These volumes are suitable for the lab or field. The editors aim to keep them as user friendly as possible. However the complexity of the subject matter makes the books more suitable for the more experienced practitioner.
