|Abstract: ||The distribution and source of published and unpublished records of 307 marine, freshwater, terrestrial and subterranean amphipod species in Ireland are documented. A historical account of studies on amphipods in Ireland, including the researchers, frequency of publications, localities and habitats surveyed, and sampling methods, is presented. The occurrence of introduced
species, commensalism, and parasitism is noted.
The amphipod fauna recorded from Galway Bay, Kilkieran Bay, the Clare Island Survey, Belfast Lough, Strangford Lough, Dublin Bay, Carnsore Point, Cork Harbour, Kinsale Harbour, Lough Hyne and Valentia is discussed.
The Irish and British lists are compared. Differences with the British list are largely explicable in terms of the latitudinal range of a species. The balance consists of rare, introduced, recently described, and unconfirmed records.|
