Abstract

INTRODUCTION Although furry lobsters of the genus Palinurellus Von Martens, 1878 have been widely recorded from the Indo-West Pacific and the western Atlantic, they are always rare throughout their range. Two species are currently recognized in the genus, one from the western Atlantic and one from the Indo-West Pacific (Chan, 2010). However, the exact differences between these two species are unclear because of the limited number of specimens available for both (see Holthuis, 1991). The Indo-West Pacific species is known as Palinurellus wieneckii (De Man, 1881) and has been reported from Natal in South Africa, Mauritius, the Red Sea, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, the Ryukyu Islands in Japan, the Caroline Islands, Guam, the Marshall Islands, New Caledonia, Hawaii and the Tuamotu Islands in French Polynesia (see Devaney & Bruce, 1987; Holthuis, 1991; Nguyên & Pham, 1995; Chan, 1998; Debelius, 1999; Paulay et al., 2003). Phyllamphion larvae, supposed to belong to this species, have been recorded from East Africa, the western Indian Ocean, the Philippines, the Ryukyu Islands, the South China Sea, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, and the Tuamotu Islands (see Holthuis, 1991; Sekiguchi & Saisho, 1994).
