Abstract

Thirty two species of gammaridean Amphipoda are recorded from 0 to 1 m depth in the Society Islands. Six species in the genera Elasmopus, Maera, Cheiriphotis, Polynesoecetes n.gen. and Jassa are new to science and are described and figured. Based on the shallow-water Amphipoda, the Society Islands show their closest biogeographic relationship with Tonga, Fiji and New Caledonia to the west.
