THE FRESHWATER SHRIMPS OF SAINT LUCIA, WEST INDIES (DECAPODA, NATANTIA) BY GUY BARNISH Papua New Guinea Institute of Medical Research, P.O. Box 60, Goroka, Papua New Guinea Collections of freshwater shrimps from Cul de Sac Valley on the north west of the island of St. Lucia resulted in the identification of 13 species. This is more than has been recorded for any of the other Lesser Antillean Islands with the exception of Guadeloupe. Six species of shrimp belong to the family Atyidae, six to the Palaemonidae and one to the Penaeidae. Representative specimens of the Atyidae and Palaemonidae have been deposited in the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institu- tion, Washington DC, U.S.A. Surrock (1974) listed 11 species of shrimps from Cul de Sac Valley, whilst Levèque (1974) and Carvacho & Carvacho (1976) jointly list 15 species of freshwater shrimps from Guadeloupe. In St. Vincent, Chace & Hobbs (1969) and Harrison & Rankin (1976) have identified nine species. One habitat has yet to be discovered on these islands - that of subterranean water - where there is always a chance of finding further species. No attempt has been made here to describe the freshwater shrimps of St.
