Note(s): Four species of caridean decapods together represent a productive elements of the epifauna of eelgrass beds in Western Port, Australia. The guild is dominated by a palaemonid species, Macrobrachium intermedium Stimpson, which was found to have a mean annual density of approximately 50 individuals m−2 and an annual productivity of 3.4 g ash-free dry mass m−2. Analyses of shrimp diets indicated that three species, M. intermedium, Hippolyte caradina Holthuis and Chlorotocella leptorhyncus (Stimpson), are consumers of both animal and plant material, while a single (crangonid) species, Pontophilus intermedius (Fulton and Grant), is a specialized carnivore.This manuscript is an author version with the final publication available at http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/03043770 and may be cited as: Howard, R.
