Goneplacid Crab (Carcinoplax nana) - This dark-fingered goneplacid crab  inhabits  rocks and boulders to depths of 30 to 70 meters in Balicasag Island. [Photo: P. K. L. Ng]

Largo’s Spider Crab (Cyrtomaia largoi)  - This deep sea spider crab is characterised by many long sharp spines and long legs. This species was hauled out of the depths from over 400 meters. The species is named after the head of USC’s biology program, Dr Danilo Largo, and was described by Dr. Bertrand Richer de Forges, an expert on the genus, from the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement in Nouméa, New Caledonia.

Fuzzy Sponge Crab (Hirsutodynomene vespertilio) - It is easily the most diagnostic of the sponge crabs known due to its dense fur and unusual carapace features, hence its common name. The species was named by Professor Colin McLay of Canterbury University in New Zealand, an expert on the family.  [Photo: P. Ng]

PHILIPPINE SHELLS

The Philippines has over 7,000 islands, and its coastline is longer than that of the United States. Being the oldest coral reef formation in the world, it is no wonder that we are very rich in marine life, especially seashells. There were so many shells new to science being discovered and named in our country in the past 25 years. Recently, there are many more under study by conchologists all over the world. We should be encouraged to move forward to further study our heritage beneath our seas. 

For this first series, the following Philippine shells are featured:

Postal patrons and stamp collectors will truly love the unique designs of these definitive stamps which showcase the interesting parts of the Philippine marine organisms:

Dendronephtya Soft Coral (Dendronephthya sp.)
Viewed close up these magnificent animals present a graphic example of soft coral anatomy. They lack symbiotic algae or zooxanthellae that mask the internal structure of many other species. The embedded calcareous slivers or sclerites that make up the internal skeleton are clearly visible through the semitransparent trunk and branches. Fleshy polyps are grouped in clusters on the branch.
