Abstract

Bathyporeia guilliamsoniana (Spence Bate, 1857) specimens collected in the Levantine Basinof the Mediterranean Sea displayed polymorphism in some characters. More than 100 specimenswere examined and their intra-specific variation in the shape of the third epimeral plate analysedand quantified. The morphometric geometry methodology is used to assess the ‘cryptic’ variationin shape which may obscure identification. The results support the assignment of sunnivae andmegalops to morphotypes of B. guilliamsoniana sensu d’Udekem d’Acoz & Vader (2005).
