A NEW CAVE SHRIMP FROM SOUTHEASTERN UNITED STATES (DECAPODA, ATYIDAE) BY ALFRED E. SMALLEY Department of Zoology, Tulane University, New Orleans, U.S.A. The only known species of atyid shrimp from eastern United States is Palae- monia.r ganteri Hay, 1902, from Mammoth Cave, Kentucky; in the sixty years since its description, P. ganteri has not been found outside the type locality. Examination of collections from a cave in northern Alabama has resulted in recog- nition of a similar but distinct species. I am grateful to Dr. R. D. Suttkus, who first brought my attention to the existence of the new shrimp and directed me to the type locality, and to Dr. F. A. Chace, Jr., who provided helpful criticism of the manuscript.
