Lobster, any of numerous marine crustaceans constituting the families Homaridae, Palinuridae, Scyllaridae, and Polychelidae. The lobster has a rigid, segmented body covering (exoskeleton) and five pairs of legs, one or more pairs of which are often modified into pincers. The family Polychelidae includes thirty-eight species of blind deep-sea lobsters distributed in six genera. POLYCHELIDAE Blind lobsters At least 2 species in the area, at depths be-tween and 2 small and lack-ing pigment; soft-bodied deep sea lobsters; carapace without a rostrum; telson of tail fan pointed;first4oralllegswithpincers,firstpair enlarged; antennae cylindrical, shorter than body.

Most spiny and slipper lobsters (Palinuridae and Scyllaridae, respectively), as well as the Synaxidae usually occur in fairly shallow waters, often on a rocky bottom or a bottom with coarse sediment. Most Nephropidae, a few Palinuridae and Scyllaridae, as well as the Polychelidae are found in deeper water on a muddy bottom.   The clawed lobsters of the Family Nephropidae sensuTshudy and Babcock () have received little or no attention with regard to diversity through time, and even across the K/T boundary. Indeed, they are a relatively small taxonomic group ( species arrayed in 18 genera; 67 species in 7 genera with a fossil record), and their skeletons are less readily Cited by:
