ABSTRACT

The frequency of occurrence, size-mass parameters and phenotypic belonging of mussels Mytilus galloprovincialis (Lamarck, 1819) with partial albinism (non-pigmented mantle and podium) in the bottom communities and periphyton settlements near the Odessa bay (the Lanzheron Cape, north-western section of the Black Sea), were studied. Individual morphometric characteristics were compared of albino-forms and normally colored specimens. No statistically significant differences of mass characteristics of the shells, wet and dry mass of the soft body between non-pigmented and normally colored specimens of the same size group were found.
