Dubious identification:

Material examined. Philippines. Dumaran Channel, NE Palawan, 2–3 m, 1 May 1985: 1 M 3.6 mm, 1 ov. F 3.9 mm (MNHN-IU- 2013-8341).

Papua New Guinea. PAPUA NIUGINI, Stn PR43, 05° 15.5 'S, 145 ° 49.1 'E, 0 m, 16 November 2012: 1 ov. F 6.3 mm (MNHN-IU- 2013 - 509).—Stn PR97, 05° 12.4 'S, 145 ° 49 'E, 0 m, 24 November 2012: 1 F 2.8 mm (MNHN-IU- 2013 - 831).—Stn PB16, 05°04.7'S, 145 ° 48.8 'E, 5 m, 30 December 2012: 1 M 2.0 mm, 1 ov. F 2.6 mm (MNHN-IU- 2013 - 660).

New Caledonia. Lifou Island. LIFOU, Stn 1432, 20° 53.5 'S, 167 °02.7'E, 12-32 m, 04/07/ 21 November 2000: 1 ov. F 5.0 mm (MNHN-IU- 2013-8342).

Remarks. The specimens agree quite well the descriptions and illustrations of previous authors (see synonymy). In a few specimens the epipods are present on P 1 and P 2 only (usually on P 1–3).

The genetic divergences among G. inflata  and other species are higher than 13.1 % ( G. ternatensis De Man, 1902  ) ( COI), and 10.6 % ( G. pubescens Stimpson, 1858  ) (16 S rRNA) ( Tab. 2).

Distribution. Previous records from Japan (Ryukyu Islands), Taiwan, Indonesia (Banda, Gorong and Marsegu Island), and Torres Strait; subtidal to 10 m). Present material from the Philippines and Papua New Guinea and New Caledonia (Lifou Island); 0– 32 m.
