Chapter Summary

The atyid shrimps of Hainan Island, China, are reviewed. A taxonomic synopsis is given for the seven species of Caridina so far known from Hainan, including two new records, C. clinata and C. elongapoda, and one new species, Caridina baoting sp. nov. A detailed morphological description and illustrations are provided for the new species. Caridina baoting sp. nov. is morphologically similar to C. braviata Ng & Cai, 2000, from Yangjiang, Guangdong Province, but can be distinguished by its longer antennular peduncle, slender endopod of the male first pleopod, and much larger egg size. Taxonomic notes are provided for the remaining six species of Caridina from Hainan.
