The genus Eutrichocheles Wood Mason, 1876 (Crustacea, Decapoda, Thalassinidea) in French Polynesia and in Vietnam with description of two new species

Three species of Eutrichocheles Wood Mason, 1876 from French Polynesia and Vietnam are described, two of them new. They are compared to related taxa, one of which, Eutrichocheles modestus (Herbst, 1796), is reviewed in more detail and a diagnosis presented. Examination of new material has resulted in some amendements to the diagnosis of the genus Eutrichocheles.


Crustacea, Decapoda, Thalassinidea, Axiidae, Eutrichocheles, taxonomy, Indo-Pacific.
