ABSTRACT Fresh and preserved specimens of Aristaeomorpha foliacea caught in the Sicilian Channel were examined in order to establish a macroscopic scale for the rapid determination of sexual maturity in females. Four macroscopic criteria were identified as being useful for classification under difficult field conditions. The scale was tested against a microscopic examination of ovarian histological preparations, and corresponding stages were identified on the same specimens with good macro/microscopic agreement. Both procedures were compared to the gonadosomatic index method which, although less practical, may also prove to be a robust indicator of maturity. Practical uses for the proposed scale are given.
