Examples

  • The Japanese collection was especially interesting, containing both the fine Carabi of northern countries, and the gorgeous Buprestidae and Longicorns of the tropics.

    The Malay Archipelago

  • Thus crustaceans, like the Carcini and Carabi, discharge water through the folds beside their shaggy parts, while cuttlefish and the polyps employ for this purpose the hollow above the head.

    On youth and old age, on life and death, on breathing

  • It is for the very same reason that molluscs and crustaceans admit water-I mean such animals as Carabi and Carcini.

    On youth and old age, on life and death, on breathing

  • For in the female Carabi these are more laminar than in the males, and in the female crabs the flap is furnished with hairier appendages.

    On the Parts of Animals

  • There are four main genera, viz. the Carabi, as they are called, the Astaci, the Carides, and the Carcini.

    On the Parts of Animals

  • For the Carabi swim about and a tail is therefore of use to them, serving for their propulsion like the blade of an oar.

    On the Parts of Animals

  • Directly after their mouth comes a gullet, which, if we compare relative sizes, is but small in proportion to the body: and then a stomach, which in the Carabi and some of the Crabs is furnished with a second set of teeth, the anterior teeth being insufficient for adequate mastication.

    On the Parts of Animals

  • The distinction between the Carabi and the Carcini

    On the Parts of Animals

  • Carcini (Crabs) and the Carabi (Prickly Lobsters); it is the case also in the Testacea, as for instance in the several species known by the general name of oysters.

    On the Parts of Animals

  • In the Carabi and in the Crabs the right claw is invariably the larger and the stronger.
