Table of Contents

The morphology of the Hyperiidea varies among the families and their genera, but a generalized body form is illustrated in Fig. 1. A species frequently found in the China seas. The orphological terminology used in the present study follows Bowman and Gruner (1973).

In general. Hyperiideans are laterally compressed and considerably longer than wide. The body is inflated in some families of the Scinoidea and Platysceloidea, and in some cases individuals may roll themselves up into a ball (conglobation) as in species of Platyscelus ( Platyscelidae) and Thyropus (Parascelidae). The Oxycephalidae in at the other extreme with an elongate and thin body, as for instance, the meedle-like form in the species of Rhabdosoma.
