ABSTRACT During winter months on Seven and One-half Fathom Reef, reproduction is attenuated in populations of Synalpheus fritzmuelleri and S. apioceros. Some ovigerous specimens occur throughout the year, but much lower percentages of both populations carry normal eggs in winter months, and broods of these eggs appear to be smaller. A seemingly wasteful production of nonviable, minute, chalky eggs by S. apioceros during winter months and the absence of such eggs in S. fritzmuelleri under the same ambient conditions could relate to the more tropical restriction of the former species. On Seven and One-half Fathom Reef, S. apioceros is probably near the northernmost extreme at which it can successfully reproduce.
