ABSTRACT All adult Octolasmis live permanently fixed to animate hosts by a basal attachment disc. The peduncle connects the disc to the plated capitulum. The area of the capitular plates and the capitular perimeter bordered by plates is assessed for 28 species of Octolasmis. A hypothesis that the species of Octolasmis that live inside decapod gill chambers will have smaller, more variable plates than those species that live on the exposed external surface of their hosts is articulated and tested. The data support the hypothesis under general conditions and also reveal an array of special circumstances suggesting that several aspects of host morphology and habits may also impact on the intensity of selection on capitular plate size and distribution.
