ABSTRACT The mating behavior of Bicornucythere bisanensis was observed in the laboratory for the first time with the aid of a video tape recorder. In the early stage of courtship the male rotated the female to a ventral to ventral position. The strong dimorphic asymmetry of the fifth limbs (right tumid) seemed to facilitate this process. Quick vibration was sometimes produced by the male to open the female's carapace. Similar behaviors frequently occurred also between 2 males ("false mating"). Normal and "false" matings varied in duration from less than 1-30 min.
