ABSTRACT Four species of galatheids, Munidopsis crassa, M. curvirostra, M. nitida, and M. subsquamosa were recovered from mesh-enclosed wood panels placed near experimental "wood islands" in the deep sea and retrieved with the aid of the deep submersible research vessel Alvin. Samples of the first and third of these species were large enough to allow regression analysis of carapace width and short carapace length. Five individuals of M. crassa which grew beyond 10-mm carapace width and thus were trapped within the bags are speculated to have increased this width by 1.86 mm ± 2.17 (SD) per month during a 9.6 ± 3.71 (SD)-month period. However, real growth of both this species and the smaller M. nitida remains untested. Notes on geographic distribution of the species and stomach contents are given.
