Abstract

Abstract:

During specific inventories led by the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle (MNHN, Paris), numerous specimens of Atyidae, particulary of Atya-like shrimps were collected in Melanesia (Vanuatu, Solomon Islands) and in Polynesia (Futuna, Samoa). These specimens were morphologically and genetically examined. Our study revealed that some specimens belonged to a new species in the genus AustralatyaChace, 1983. The aim of this paper is to describe this new species, Australatya keithi sp. nov., and discuss the distribution of its genus in the studied area.
