Abstract

Five known and four new species of amphipod are documented from Timor-Leste. The species biodiversity of the region shows a close affinity to what is known from tropical north Australia. Although records of amphipods from the Lesser Sunda Region are limited, the species recorded have distributions throughout the broader Indo-Pacific. The new species Ampithoe atauro, Elasmopus tibarensis, Linguimaera christorei and Quadrimaera metinaro are described herein.
