ABSTRACT The ellobiid Ellobium scheepmakeri (Petit de la Saussaye, 1850) is reported from the banks of the Selangor River estuary, 57 years after it was first collected in Peninsular Malaysia. It was found in abundance under logs in the dryland mangrove forest of a dominantly Nypa swamp at the upper reaches of the Kuala Selangor estuary where sediment pore water salinity was recorded at 6–7 ppt. 


Faunal diversity in Malaysian mangroves.
A number of diversity indices highlight the low diversity of epifaunal taxa in the recently cleared site, perhaps a consequence of the drier substrate surface in the absence of a tree canopy. Expand
