Gauthier Chapelle - IRSNB


(fam.: Hadziidae, size: up to 100mm !, depth: 150-250m)

The largest gammarid from the Antarctic. It uses to shelter in crevices or to burrow in sand. It is mainly a deposit-feeder, but should also be able to catch small living crustaceans.
The picture shows two specimens, the white colour of the lower one being unusual.
