Abstract

Kapalana g. nov. is proposed and described for seven new species of Australian cerapodin amphipods: K. amelga sp. nov.; K. durraween sp. nov.; K. kimbla sp. nov.; K. maia sp. nov.; K. michaelmas sp. nov.; K. stebbingi sp. nov. and K. wadei sp. nov. In all of these species the females show a form of parental care in that the juveniles build their initial tubes in a ring around the tube of the adult female. Cerapus flindersi Stebbing, 1888 is tentatively assigned to the new genus Kapalana.
