Ingolfiellamaldivensis sp. n. (Crustacea, Amphipoda, Ingolfiellidae) from coral reef sand off Magoodhoo island, Maldives.

Vonk R, Jaume D - Zookeys (2014)

Bottom Line: Six females were found and compared to other species from the Maldives and those bordering the Indian Ocean and beyond.Morphological resemblance ties it to a species from the Caribbean island of Curaçao.Both species are found in shallow sublittoral interstitial spaces.

ABSTRACT
A new species of marine interstitial wormshrimp, Ingolfiellamaldivensis, is described from coral sand on the inner and outer reef off Magoodhoo island, Faafu atoll, Maldives. Six females were found and compared to other species from the Maldives and those bordering the Indian Ocean and beyond. Morphological resemblance ties it to a species from the Caribbean island of Curaçao. Both species are found in shallow sublittoral interstitial spaces.
