Morphobank database published

The Patek Lab has published a Morphobank database of over 4000 photographs of mantis shrimp appendages and telsons from 89 taxa and 411 specimens.  The database is entitled "Comparative morphology of telsons and raptorial appendages in mantis shrimp".   This makes a large part of our database of scientific and calibrated images of mantis shrimp freely available.   This database accompanies a previous publication by the lab: Claverie & Patek 2013 Evolution.  

The photographs were originally taken by Thomas Claverie and the database was curated by Grace Farley.
