Explanations Of Iwp Diversity Gradients

After considering all explanations for patterns of IWP reef biodiversity, we identify here only those that are most applicable to the present study.

FIGURE 3.1 Dorsal view of typically sized reef stomatopods (large Gonodactyla-ceus falcatus, small Gonodactylellus incipiens; scale bar for both is 10.0 mm), lateral view of raptorial claw, and photograph of individual delivering a threatening display at the entrance of its burrow (Gonodactylaceus ternatensis, courtesy of Roy Caldwell). Drawing of the raptorial claw shows the merus (m), meral spot (ms, which varies in color from white through yellow, orange, red, pink, purple, and blue among species), propodus (p), and dactyl (d); p and d normally are folded against m but are opened (arrow) either together as a hammer or with d projected as a spear. Coloration of the flared antennal scales and setae also varies from yellow to red, blue, and green among species.
