dc.description.abstractThe occurrence of Tylos europaeus and T. sardous on 10 Maltese beaches was investigated. T. europaeus occurred on two beaches on Gozo and T. sardous on a single beach on Malta. The largest population was of T. europaeus at Ramla l-Hamra on Gozo, but even here the isopods occupied a limited zone close to sea-level. The diurnal and nocturnal distribution of this population as well as temporal changes in distribution pattern over two years were studied in order to provide baseline information for the conservation of this rare psammophile in the Maltese Islands.en_GB
