Un nouveau genre de crevette, Tectopontonia, est décrit, avec une nouvelle espèce, T. maziwiae, trouvée vivant en association avec le corail Acropora surculosa Dana sur les récifs du Tanganyika. Le nouveau genre est très proche des autres genres associés aux coraux, Fennera Holthuis et Metapontonia Bruce, desquels il peut être distingué par l'absence d'exopodite sur le troisième maxillipède. Les caractères saillants de la nouvelle espèce sont la forme du telson et les pinces des seconds péreiopodes; ces caractères diffèrent complètement de ceux observés chez les autres membres de la sous-famille des Pontoniinae.
