La récolte de nouveaux spécimens du bopyride Orophryxus shiinoi Bruce, 1972, est signalée. Jusqu'a présent l'espèce n'etait connue, que par l'holotype, une femelle immature. Le matériel récent comprend une femelle adulte et un mâle qui est ici décrit pour la première fois. Le mâle est très particulier en ne possédant que six segments thoraciques bien définis chacun avec une paire de péreiopodes. Les spécimens ont tous été obtenus à Mombasa, Kenya, en association avec trois hôtes nouveaux, Periclimenes consobrinus De Man, Leander tenuicornis (Say) et Leandrites cyrtorhynchus Fujino & Miyake, appartenant tous à la famille des Palaemonidae.
