Abstract

The taxonomy and ecology of the porcellanid crab, Aliaporcellana telestophila, is elaborated upon. Variations in the structure of the carapace and chelipeds are documented and figured. The species, previously thought to be a commensal of Telesto (Clavulariidae), is shown to be actually associated with another octocoral, Solenocaulon (Anthothelidae). /// La taxonomie et l'écologie du Porcellanide Aliaporcellana telestophila sont traitées en détail. Les variations dans la structure de la carapace et des chélipèdes sont examinées et figurées. L'espèce, que l'on pensait précédemment commensale de Telesto (Clavulariidae), apparaît en fait associée à un autre Octocoralliaire, Solenocaulon (Anthothelidae).
