畑 晴陵・本村浩之
The ariommatid, Ariomma brevimanum (Klunzinger, 1884), is recorded from Kashiwa-jima island and east of Cape Muroto, Kochi prefecture, Japan, on the basis of a single specimen respectively. It represents the third record for the species from Shikoku. The two specimens are discribed and their photographs are provided. Ontogenetic proportional and color changes are discussed. Examination of the two specimens revealed that irregular black blotches on the body disappeared with growth between 138.0 and 173.5mm standard length.
徳島県西部における自動撮影装置による哺乳類の環境利用の把握
山城明日香・金城芳典・河口洋一・山城 考
We investigated mammal fauna and the differences of their habitat usage bcsed on infrared-triggered camera on western Tokushima Prefecture, Japan. Cameras were set on seven points on forest, seven points on abandoned land, and 17 points on Miscanthus sinensis grassland during July to November 2015. Although nine mammals were photograhed, 68.4% of these photographs were those of Cervus nippon. Abandoned land and Miscanthus sinensis grassland were mainly used as feeding site for Cervus nippon, Sus scrofa and Lepus brachyurus. The appropriate management of lands, especially, abandoned land and Miscanthus sinensis grassland may lead to prevent the increasing of Cervus nippon and Sus scrofa populations.

谷岡 仁
The use of roosts by Ussurian tube-nosed bats(Murina ussuriensis) was studied using artificial dead leaves composed of hemp or paper. From mid-April 2013 to late November 2014, leaves were placed on branches in the lower layer of the forest. Group of females were observed seven times from mid-May to mid-June, corresponding to the pregnancy period. The number of individuals in the roost changed in each observation. A mother and her infants were observed in mid-June, and two mothers and their infants were observed at the end of July. After August, females roosted individually, with one exception. The use of leaves by a single male was observed during the study period. Owinig to recepture, some individuals tended to stay in the study sites or return to the site in the next spring.

高知県中部の鉄道高架橋をねぐら利用するコウモリ類
谷岡 仁
In November 2016, a total of 541 crevices at the junctions of elevated railways were visually inspected in central Kochi prefecture to assess the roost use by bats. The author found 775 bats in 161 crevices. All bats were considered to be the common Japanese pipistrelle Pipistrellus abramus, and rare bat species were not found. Although the urban environment had positive effects on the roost use by bats, cultivated lands and forests had negative effects on it.

A female Lates japonicus known as akame in 1036mm standard length was caught by set-net off Shiina in Muroto City, Kochi Prefecture on 2 February, 2017. The specimen represents a new locality for the species in Kochi Prefecture. Some diagnostic characters of this fish differed from the original description of the species. Important morphometric and meristic characters of the species are reviewed based on published and unpublished data.

Macrophthalmus microfylacas (Crustacea:Decapoda: Macrophthalmidae) was collected from a tidal flat in Uranouchi Inlet, Tosa Bay, Kochi Prefecture, Japan. A total of 17 crab specimens were obtained from September 2012 to December 2017, of which three were ovigerous. The specimens were identified as M. microfylacas by the characters of small body size, long eye pedunche and the shape of male cheliped.
