Geographic distribution. Punta Piaxtla, Sinaloa, Mexico to Paita, Peru; North Carolina to Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea to Santa Catarina (Perez-Farfante & Kensley 1997)

Previous records. ( Costa et al. 2003)

Distribution in Amapá state. Estuaries of the Sucuriju, Oiapoque and Cassiporé rivers.

Ecological notes. Inhabits muddy or sandy bottoms, from 1 to 70 m deep, abundant in depth up to 30 m. Marine but can enter brackish waters and exceptionally fresh waters ( Cervigon et al. 1992).

Macrobrachium jelskii ( Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 ), Palaemon carteri ( Fig. 5 View FIGURE 5 ), M. amazonicum ( Fig. 3 View FIGURE 3 ), M. surinamicum ( Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 ), M. brasiliense ( Fig. 4 View FIGURE 4 ) and E. burchelli ( Fig. 1 View FIGURE 1 ) were the species with greatest geographic distribution in Amapá. Regarding the sampled habitats, the greatest richness of shrimp occurred in rivers and streams, but these also occurred in Amazonas-wells ( Table 3 View TABLE 3 ). Considering the habitat types, rivers and streams had high species richness, but streams and estuaries were high in Shannon diversity ( Table 3 View TABLE 3 ).
