A second discovery of the echinoid associated shrimp species Diapontonia maranulus Bruce, 1986 is recorded from deep water off Curaçao, Leeward Islands of the Dutch Caribbean. The material is compared with the type description and paratypic material as well as with material of closely related species. A mtDNA COI barcode was obtained from the material. The systematic position of the genus is discussed.

High coral cover at lower mesophotic depths: a dense Agaricia community at the leeward side of Curaçao, Dutch Caribbean

Coral cover at lower mesophotic depths (particularly >75 m) by zooxanthellate scleractinians is usually very scarce, largely due to the extremely low irradiance levels at these depths. An exception

Multiple origins and strong phenotypic convergence in fish-cleaning palaemonid shrimp lineages.

Bonaire and Curaçao

Bonaire and Curacao are oceanic islands surrounded by coral reefs on their leeward sides extending steeply down to mesophotic depths (30–150 m). Easy access from shore, as well as the geopolitical

Diapontonia Maranulus, New Genus, New Species, a Pontoniine Shrimp Associate of a Deep-water Echinoid

A new genus and species of pontoniine shrimp is found in association with an asterostomatoid echinoid host, Palaeopneustes tholoformis, in the Bahamian region, at a depth of 240-309 m.

It is concluded that Lacertopontonia and Chernocaris fall within the present definition of Conchodytes and should be regarded as synonyms of the latter.
