ABSTRACT Notopontonia platycheles new genus, new species (Decapoda: Pontoniinae), is described and illustrated. Caught off Robe, South Australia, at a depth of 64 m, and of unknown commensal associations, this species increases to five the number of pontoniine shrimps known from South Australia. Assessment of the systematic relationships of Notopontonia involved study of Pontonia pinnophylax (Otto, 1821), the type species of the genus Pontonia, which is redescribed and illustrated, leading to the discovery of an interesting morphological feature of the feeding mechanism not previously reported in any palaemonid shrimps.
