A New Species of Hippolytid Shrimp from the West Coast of Mexico
Thor algicola n. sp. is described from the Gulf of California and southwestern Mexico. Related to T. manningi and T. floridanus of the warmer western Atlantic, T. algicola can be distinguished by the spines on its first per- eopods and its larger size. T. algicola usually lives on rocky bottoms, often among algae.
