The distribution of decapod crustaceans on soft substrata was studied at two sites, Montalto di Castro and Gulf of Gaeta, in the central Mediterranean Sea (Tyrrhenian Sea). In the whole area, a total of 16 species of decapods (6 Natantia, Caridea; 4 Reptantia Macrura, Thalassinidea; 2 Anomura; and 4 Brachyura) were collected by a Van Veen grab. The decapod distribution seems to be influenced by granulometric composition rather than by depth. Some species demonstrated an affinity for a substratum that differs with respect to published literature records. Nel presente lavoro è stata studiata la distribuzione dei crostacei decapodi di substrato mobile in due aree, Montalto di Castro e Golfo di Gaeta, del Mar Mediterraneo Centrale (Mar Tirreno). Nell'intera area sono stati campionati mediante benna Van Veen un totale di 16 specie (6 Natantia, Caridea; 4 Reptantia Macrura, Thalassinidea; 2 Anomura; e 4 Brachyura). La distribuzione dei decapodi sembra essere influenzata dalla composizione granulometrica piuttosto che dalla profondità. Alcune specie dimostrano un'affinità per substrati diversi rispetto a quelli riportati dalla letteratura conosciuta.
