Abstract

Two new species of cyproideid amphipods, Cyproidea cobia, sp. nov. and Narapheonoides lowryi, sp. nov., are described from the Great Barrier Reef. Cyproidea cobia, sp. nov., is characterized by gnathopod 1 having a rectolinear basis and gnathopod 2 ischium posterior process not developed. Narapheonoides lowryi, sp. nov., differs from its congeners in that the basis in both pereopods 6 and 7 has a posterodistal flange and the pereopod 6 basis is broader. With the recently described Gbroidea dingaalana Lowry & Azman, 2008, collected from Lizard Island, this study brings the number of known cyproideid amphipods from the Great Barrier Reef to three species.
