Description of a New Species of Brackish-water Gammarus (G. chevreuxi, n. sp.)


The Gammarus here described is found in Chelson Meadow, a large tract of reclaimed land lying near the mouth of the Plym, and protected from the tidal water by an embankment. The land is drained by ditches, which empty into the Plym at low water by means of sluice-gates. The sea-water enters in volume only at the highest tides over the top of the sluice-gates, but there is a constant slight infiltration of salt water through the embankment.
