Abstract: A behavioral study of functions of the first and second antennae of Pagurus granosimanus and Pagurus samuelis was made. The primary method was extirpation and comparision with intact crabs. No chemotaxis or left-right preference was observed. Rheotaxis was found to occur in both species, but antennular involvement was only evident in Pagurus samuelis.
