ABSTRACT A new genus, Exopontonia, is proposed for a single example of a new species of small palaemonid shrimp of unknown commensal association or habitat, collected from the inner reef flat of Ashmore Reef, Timor Sea. The new species, E. malleatrix, is described and illustrated, and is distinguishable from all other palaemonid shrimps by the remarkable chela of the first pereiopods. The second pereiopods are dissimilar, the left resembling that of a Pontonia and the right, of Paratypton, the only species known to inhabit cysts in live coral hosts.
