Notes on some shrimp species (Decapoda: Caridea) from Qatar, with an annotated checklist of marine caridean species known from the Persian Gulf

  • Sammy De Grave (a1) and Christopher W. Ashelby (a2)

Abstract

The present contribution reports on a small collection of caridean shrimps from Qatar. Six species are reported upon, three of which are new additions to the caridean fauna of the Persian Gulf, also representing the first records for the crangonid genus Philocheras and the family Pandalidae from the area. An annotated checklist of species known to date from the Persian Gulf is provided, totalling 59 species.
