ABSTRACT A new stygiophilic alpheid shrimp from Upolu, Samoa Islands, is described and illustrated. Hamalpheus acanthops, new genus, new species, is the only alpheid shrimp definitely known from a marine lava tube. The new genus is characterized by a conspicuous spiniform process of the anterior eyestalk and a modified caudal fan with unique holdfast adaptations. The new genus is most closely related to Betaeopsis Yaldwyn, from which it is distinguished by the presence of the above-mentioned features. A key is also provided to the 29 alpheid genera currently known from the Indo-West Pacific Region.
