Shimomura M, Naruse T - Zookeys (2015)

Bottom Line: These are the first records of Pleurocope from the Pacific and of Prethura from the Asian Pacific coast.Pleurocope iriomotensis differs from its congeners in having lateral spine-like processes on pereonite 4 and coxal plates of pereonite 7.Prethura tuberculata can be distinguished from its single congener in having a lateral short projection of protopod of pleopod 2.

ABSTRACT
Pleurocope iriomotensis sp. n. and Prethura tuberculata sp. n. are described from Iriomote Island, Ryukyu Archipelago, southern Japan. These are the first records of Pleurocope from the Pacific and of Prethura from the Asian Pacific coast. Pleurocope iriomotensis differs from its congeners in having lateral spine-like processes on pereonite 4 and coxal plates of pereonite 7. Prethura tuberculata can be distinguished from its single congener in having a lateral short projection of protopod of pleopod 2.

Mentions: Iriomote Island (Fig. 1) in the southwestern part of the Ryukyu Archipelago is located in a subtropical climate zone for terrestrial environments, but its marine fauna is more tropical, being strongly influenced by Kuroshio, a prominent warm ocean current. The island is surrounded by coral reefs and a variety of mangroves, sandy or rocky shores.
