Abstract

Spontaneous activity and solar and lunar orientation of Deshayesorchestia deshayesii (Audouin, 1826) (Talitridae) were observed for 24 hours under natural conditions. The activity began around sunset and finished at sunrise, with two peaks: the first one indicating a landward migration and a second one a seaward migration. Orientation was significantly dependent on spontaneous activity, air humidity and temperature, azimuth and sex.
