A new pontoniine shrimp from the Great Barrier Reef (Crustacea. Decapoda. Palaemonidae)

Periclimenes kallisto sp. nov., a pontoniine shrimp new to the Australian fauna, is described from Keeper and Swains Reefs, at the central region and southeastern end of the Great Barrier Reef. The specimens were found in association with unidentified antipatharian hosts at depths of 38 and 10 metres. Periclimenes brocketti Borradaile, 1915, is formally synonymised with P. affinis (Zehntner, 1902).
