Abstract

Two new Pendanthura species are described and illustrated. Pendanthura tinggiensis sp. nov. was collected from coral rubble on the coral reefs of Pulau Tinggi, Johor, Malaysia, and Pendanthura tiomanensis sp. nov. from similar habitats at Pulau Tioman, Pahang, Malaysia. The former species is recognizable by a blunt tooth on the propodal palm of pereopod 1, while the latter species is characterized by a pointed tooth with a transparent margin on the propodal palm of pereopod 1 and a significant large brown patch on cephalon dorsally.
