Abstract

A symbiotic crab Sestrostoma balssi (Shen, 1932) (Varunidae: Gaeticinae) that lives in burrows of the large ghost shrimp Upogebia major (De Haan, 1841) and U. issaeffi (Balss, 1913) (Upogebiidae) was found in Vostok Bay (Peter the Great Bay, Sea of Japan) for the first time. The occurrence of mature and juvenile specimens indicates the existence of a stable population of this species in the investigated region. This finding substantially extends the distribution area of S. balssi in the Sea of Japan.
