[The assemblages of peracarid crustaceans associated with the red alga Corallina elongata were studied from November 2006 to November 2007 in Rafraf, Tunisia (Mediterranean Sea). Monthly sampling yielded a total of 3593 individuals comprising 22 different species. The peracarids showed significant differences in mean density. Amphipoda were dominant in both numbers of individuals and species diversity. The amphipods Elasmopus pocillimanus, Caprella grandimana, and Stenothoe monoculoides were the dominant species and exhibited seasonal differences in density. The complex structure of C. elongata can provide a permanent refuge for peracarid Crustacea, and species such as the caprellid Caprella grandimana, in particular, seem to be are well adapted to this habitat.
