Kamaka taditadi, a New Marine Species from Papua New Guinea (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Corophioidea)
Memoirs of the Museum of Victoria
Kamaka taditadi is a new marine species of a genus heretofore found in fresh and brackish waters of Japan, eastern Siberia and Vietnam. Our species was found in almost fully saline seawater in an embayment near Madang, Papua New Guinea. The new species differs from the three previously known species in the thick male antenna 2 and the odd eusirid form of male gnathopod 2; it also is characterized, but not necessarily uniquely, in the short coxae 2- 7, sparsity of spines on uropods 1- 2, broad apex of mandibular palp and weak merus of pereopods 3-4.
