1. Two types of locomotory activity, here termed jumping and crawling, were distinguished. Evidence is presented that the jumping specimina are the radially directed ones. 2. In experiments on on-visual orientation in Talitrus, carried out with a group of animals in a bowl, only the radially directed recordings could be shown to be non-uniformly distributed. 3. These radially directed animals were orientated in an ecologically important direction, viz. either perpendicular or parallel to their beach of origin. 4. The non-visual orientation, initially present in a group of Talitrus, tends to fade out after some time. 5. The non-uniform frequency distributions are uni- or multi-modal. 6. The expression "non-visual orientation", the influence of humidity, and the biological meaning of non-visual orientation are discussed.
