Abstract

Two new species of the new genera Anamaera (A. hixom) and Spathiopus (S looensis), both belonging to the section Gammarida of Amphipoda, are described from the Florida Keys. Anamaera is a new genus close to Maera, Ceradocus, and Ceradomaera, but has an unique combination of minor character expressions. Males of Spathiopus have an unusual paddle-shaped antenna 2 but otherwise Spathiopus appears to be an apomorph of Elasmopus.
