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