Note(s): Decapod crustaceans associated with living colonies of the scleractinian coral Oculina varicosa were sampled quantitatively for 1 year at 4 reef stations encompassing depths of 6, 27, 42, and 80 m off the central eastern Florida coast. A total of 42 samples of individual colonies yielded over 2,300 decapods in 15 families, 35 genera and 50 species, and was species-rich in xanthid and majid crabs (10, 6 spp., respectively), and alpheid shrimp (9 spp.).
