Abstract

A new species of Grandidierella is described from the Inner Gulf of Thailand. This species inhabits high saline waters of abandoned saltpans from the Samut Sakorn district, Thailand. It appears to be closely related to Grandidierella propodentata Moore, 1986, also collected at hypersaline environments, in having an accessory flagellum; and arborescent setae on the inner face of the outer lobe of lower lip. The main diagnostic features of Grandidierella halophilus new species are a coxal plate 2 with ventral margin posteriorly produced into triangular expansion; uropod 3 peduncle inflated with ramus bearing a small second article; lower lip with arborescent setae on the inner face of the outer lobe; and bifid robust setae on antennae 1-2, gnathopods 1-2, pereopods 5-7, and uropods 1-2. This combination of characters has not been recorded previously in the Grandidierella.
