Podocerus chelonophilus (=P. cheloniae), an amphipod inhabiting the carapace of the loggerhead turtle, Caretta caretta, is reported for the first time from the western Atlantic Ocean. Previously, this amphipod had been reported only from the eastern Atlantic Ocean in the Azores Islands and in the Mediterranean Sea along the shores of Algeria. The record by Stebbing (1888) stated simply "Atlantic" and may have been from the western Atlantic because the CHALLENGERExpedition traversed those waters…

Shallow-water, coral reef and mangrove Amphipoda (Gammaridea) of Fiji
TLDR
Fiji is characterised by a higher percentage of domicolo~ls forms than any other well studied island group and Forty percent of Fijian taxa are new to science but this figure will undoubtedly be lowered when more Indo-Pacific island groups are explored.
