Lobsters, mud shrimps and anomuran crabs

The Lobsters, mud shrimps and anomuran crabs Synopsis covers the Decapod Crustacea not included in Synopses 15 and 25. It features keys and detailed accounts for the identification of lobsters, mud shrimps and anomuran crabs.

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 are intended to bridge the gap between standard field guides and 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, with technical terminology kept to a minimum and a glossary of terms provided. However the complexity of the subject matter makes the books more suitable for the more experienced practitioner.
