Abstract

A new species of pontoniinid shrimp from the Great Barrier Reef, Australia, is described and illustrated. The new species shows several morphological features intermediate between species of Typton and another spongicolous genus Onycocaris Nobili. The systematic affinities of the new species are discussed and the features which distinguish it from other species from the Pacific and western Indian Oceans and from the single American species, to which it is most closely similar, are noted.
