ABSTRACT Small lesions were made in the integument of Cambarus bartonii, Crangon septemspinosa, Gammarus oceanicus, and Idotea baltica. Examination by light and transmission electron microscopy of tissue removed at several intervals up to 8 weeks after injury demonstrated that all species produced repair cuticle across the wound. While there were differences in the organization of this material in the four species, none of the repair cuticles contained an epicuticle. These observations, together with others reported in the literature for Crustacea and other arthropods, suggest that the absence of epicuticle is a general property of arthropod repair cuticle.
