ABSTRACT Talitroides alluaudi (Talitroidea: Talitridae) exhibits a complex repertoire of grooming movements. The mouthparts and both pairs of gnathopods are the primary grooming effectors, with more grooming effort devoted to the appendages than to the general body surfaces. The grooming behavior of T. alluaudi is similar to that of semiterrestrial and aquatic talitroideans. Amphipod grooming is relatively specialized in comparison to many crustaceans. The possible secondary role of grooming as a displacement behavior is also discussed.
