Two New Thalassinidea (Crustacea: Decapoda) from Japan, with the Biogeographical Distribution of the Japanese Thalassinidea
Abstract:Two new species of the section Thalassinidea, Axiopsis (Axiopsis) pilocheira and Callianidea lepta from Japan are described. In addition, two species not previously recorded from Japanese waters, Calocaris granulosus from Sagami Bay and Callianassa indica from Okinawa, are reported. As a result, the species of Japanese Thalassinidea referable to 13 genera and 6 families now number 42. Nine seem to be elements from the Indo-southern West Pacific region, 31 are attributed to the central west Pacific, including 9 Japanese endemics, and 2 seem to be extended from the northern Pacific.
