ABSTRACT A single ovigerous female of Neopericlimenes thornei, new genus, new species, a small pontoniine shrimp, was recovered at a depth of 40 m from handnet sweepings of black coral colonies, Stichopathes sp. (Antipatharia). Collections were made on the fringing reef of Pine Cay, Turks and Caicos Islands, British West Indies (∼21°53'N, 72°06'W). Neopericlimenes is distinguished from all other palaemonid genera by the following combination of characters: (1) rostrum well developed, laterally compressed, deep, armed with dorsal teeth; (2) absence of posterolateral eaves; (3) presence of only branchiostegal spine on carapace; (4) second maxilla with endite reduced, distinctly shorter than endopod; (5) absence of an exopodal lash on first maxilliped; (6) presence of vestigial but distinctly recognizable exopod on second maxilliped; (7) absence of functional exopod on third maxilliped (exopod represented by minute indistinct nub); (8) second pereiopods equal, with small delicate chelae (similar in size to those of pereiopods 1); and (9) extreme length of sixth abdominal somite (about four times longer than fifth).
