Chapter Summary

This chapter describes and illustrates a new hippolytid shrimp species of the genus Lysmata Risso, 1816, Lysmata lipkei sp. nov.,on the basis of 13 specimens from intertidal and sublittoral zones of the Boso Peninsula, Honshu and the Ryukyu Islands, Japan. Morphologically, L. lipkei is closely related to the eastern Indian Ocean species, L. dispar Hayashi, 2007, but differs from the latter by the structure of the rostrum, the armature of the antennular peduncle, and the number of articulations of the second pereiopods. All specimens of the new species were collected recently from the intertidal and sublittoral zones. Illustrations were made with the aid of a drawing tube mounted on a LEICA MZ 12 stereomicroscope.
