Stomatopod Crustacea of the Western Atlantic

  title={Stomatopod Crustacea of the Western Atlantic},
  author={Raymond B. Manning},
The stomatopod fauna of the western Atlantic is far richer in number of species than previously believed. Sixty-two species, representing 18 genera and four families, are described and illustrated. Twenty-eight species have been added to the western Atlantic fauna, including 24 species described as a result of this study. Ten new species and one new subspecies are described in this report, and four other species, previously unrecorded from the area, are recognized. Complete synonymies are… 

Interspecific Interactions among Selected Intertidal Stomatopods

Stomatopods, or mantis shrimps as they are commonly known, are predatory Crustacea found in most temperate and tropical costal marine habitats. While the group is not large, with fewer than a

Revision of the Australian Stomatopod Crustacea

The results of the present study double the known stomatopod fauna of Australian waters, now totalling 146 species and 63 genera, in 7 superfamilies and 14 families—about 50% of species and almost 74% of genera from the Indo-West Pacific.

Oringins, distribution, and zoogeographic affinities of the Cirripedia (Crustacea) of the Gulf of Mexico

Evidence presented indicates that the Gulf of Mexico is a transition region or zone between tropical and temperate shelf faunas.

Stomatopod Crustacea of the KUMEJIMA 2009 Expedition, Japan*

The stomatopod Crustacea collected during the KUMEJIMA 2009 expedition to Kume Island, Ryukyu Islands, southernJapan, are reported, and 10 are new records for Japan, of which one species, Gonodactylellus kume, is new to science.

Crustáceos Estomatópodos e Decápodos da costa de Ilhéus, Bahia, Brasil

Sublittoral stomatopod and decapod (suborder Pleocyemata) from the coast of Ilheus are surveyed, filling gaps in their distribution along the Brazilian coast.

Stomatopods (Crustacea: Malacostraca) from the Miocene of California

The scarce fossil record of stomatopod crustaceans is extended with three new species and two new genera described from the Miocene of California with characteristic stages of decay that clearly correspond with those noticed in taphonomic experiments with Recent stom atopods.

Checklist of Stomatopoda (Malacostraca: Hoplocarida) deposited in the MOUFPE collection, with a new record from Brazil

There are now 42 species of Stomatopoda recorded from the Brazilian coast, with two Brazilian endemic species having their southern geographical ranges increased and one was recorded for the first time from northeast Brazilian waters.

A new species of Nannosquilla (Stomatopoda: Nannosquillidae) from the Western

During surveys conducted in the Potiguar Basin, Rio Grande do Norte state/BR, a new species, Nannosquilla potiguara, was found, similar to N. schmitti, but differing in the number of teeth of the raptorial claw, in the morphology of rostral plate, and in the median projection of telson.


Six species representing the order Stomatopoda are reported from the shallow, inshore waters (passes, bays, and estuaries) of the northern Gulf of Mexico limited to a depth of 10 m or less, and by
