A new species of the pontoniine shrimp genus Onycocaris Nobili, 1904, O. nieli, from the Great Barrier Reef, is described and illustrated. This species most closely resembles O. temiri Marin, 2005, known only from Vietnam but is readily distinguished by differences in the armament of the second pereiopod chelae. This raises to 16 the species number of this genus, which is known only from the tropical Indo-West Pacific region. A key for their identification is provided. © 2011 BRILL. Source

The pontoniine shrimp, Periclimenes pholeter Holthuis, 1973, is reported from 2148 m in the Red Sea, the first time a pontoniine shrimp has been recorded from over 2000 m. Source

Two specimens of an undescribed species of pontoniine shrimp of the genus Periclimenaeus Borradaile 1915 from Maui Island, Hawaiian Islands, are described and illustrated, raising to three the number of species known from the Hawaiian Islands. The new species is remarkable for the greatly reduced molar process and sharp lateral cutting edge on the major second pereiopod dactyl and most closely resembles P. tchesunovi Ďuriš, 1990. Host animals not identified. Periclimenaeus devaneyi Bruce, 2010 also has its colouration described for the first time Copyright © 2014 Magnolia Press. Source

An undescribed species of pontoniine shrimp of the genus Nippontonia Bruce & Bauer, N. ashmoriensis sp. nov., collected from a sponge from Ashmore Reef, Western Australia, is described and illustrated. © 2014 Magnolia Press. Source

Periclimenaeus parkeri sp. nov. (Crustacea: Decapoda: Pontoniinae), a shrimp from the Kimberley, Western Australia, is described and illustrated. The single specimen was found off Cassini Island, at 12 m, in an unidentified ascidian host. The new species has the fingers of both second pereiopods with a molar process and fossa mechanism, a character that necessitates a minor revision of the definition of the genus Periclimenaeus Borradaile, 1915. A key to distinguish the new species from similar taxa is provided. Source
