NOTES ON SOME INDO-PACIFIC PONTONIINAE. XV. HAMOPONTONIA CORALLICOLA GEN. NOV., SP. NOV., A NEW PONTONIID SHRIMP FROM HONG KONG BY A. J. BRUCE Fisheries Research Station, Hong Kong 1) Although numerous shrimps of the subfamily Pontoniinae Kingsley, 1878, have been reported in association with corals, the majority have been found on branching corals and none have so far been reported as commensally associated with any of the massive corals. During the course of collection of shrimps from shallow waters around Hong Kong some pontoniid shrimps were found on isolated heads of a massive coral. On subsequent examination these shrimps were found to possess a number of characteristic features, some unlike those of any other genus so far described. A new genus is now erected for the inclusion of these specimens and the definition of the subfamily Pontoniinae is emended to include the new genus. Hamopontonia gen. nov.
