A new criterion for the identification of some Crustacea Decapoda is described, based on SEM-observations. Carapace micro-structures have been found to differ at a specific level within the same genus, i.e., Ebalia. All Mediterranean species of this genus have been investigated as to this character, because of the well-known difficulties with regard to their classification. The usefulness of SEM-observations for the identification of damaged and fossil specimens is pointed out as well.
