Atarbolana makranensis, a new species of Cirolanidae (Crustacea, Isopoda) from Makran, Iranian coast of the Gulf of Oman.

Khalaji-Pirbalouty V, Naderloo R, Keikhosravi A - Zookeys (2015)

Bottom Line: Atarbolana makranensis sp. n. is described from the intertidal zone of Makran along the Iranian coast of the Gulf of Oman.Atarbolana makranensis sp. n. can be recognized by the presence of a tuft of long setae on the antennal flagellum of males, elongate pleotelson with 12 robust marginal setae, pleotelson with narrowly rounded apex extending well beyond the uropodal endopod, uropodal endopod half as long as exopod with 14 robust marginal setae, and appendix masculina with an acute apex and extending beyond endopod distal margin.A key is provided for the four known species of Atarbolana Bruce & Javed, 1987.

Figure 1: Geographical distribution of Atarbolana species.

Mentions: The genus Atarbolana Bruce & Javed, 1987, was established with the description of Atarbolanaexoconta from the rocky intertidal coast of Manora Island, Pakistan. Atarbolanasetosa Javed & Yasmeen, 1989, and Atarbolanadasycolus Yasmeen, 2004, have been subsequently described from the same coast (Karachi, Pakistan). Atarbolanamakranensis sp. n. constitutes the fourth species of the genus from the northwestern Indian Ocean and is the first species of the order Isopoda recorded from the Iranian coast of the Gulf of Oman (Fig. 1).
