ABSTRACT
Two species of melitid amphipod were collected from the Gulf of Thailand. Dulichiella pattaniensis is new to science, and Melitalati latiflagella Ren & Andres, 2012 has not been previously reported from Thai Waters. Dulichiella pattaniensis is characterized by male gnathopod 2 distolateral crown with 4 spines; pleonite/urosomite formula 7-7-7-5-6-2; pereopod 5-7 dactylus with 2 accessory spines. This combination of characters has not been recorded previously in the Dulichiella. The characters of the specimens are described and illustrated. All specimens are deposited in the Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn Natural History Museum, Prince of Songkla University, Thailand.

Mentions: Amphipods were collected from some settlement plates in an artificial reef in Ban Pak Bang Ta Wa, Pattani Bay and from sediment of Lower Songkhla Lake (Figure 1). The sites were visited at low tide and amphipods were collected using a 20×20 cm Ekman grab from the subtidal zone. The amphipod specimens were sorted out and fixed in formalin for 1 week and then stored in 70% alcohol. In the laboratory, the specimens were transferred from alcohol into glycerol for study. Drawing was accomplished using a drawing tube attached to an Olympus CH30 light microscope. The pencil drawings were scanned and digitally inked using a WACOM bamboo CTH-970 graphics board following the method described in Coleman (2003). The following abbreviations are used: A
