Munida isos Ahyong & Poore, 2004

Munida microps . — Haig, 1973: 273 [part, smaller specimen only] [not M. microps Alcock, 1894 ].

Munida isos Ahyong & Poore, 2004: 34 View Cited Treatment –38, fig. 6 [type locality: off St Patricks Head, Tasmania, 41 ° 35 ’S, 148 ° 14 ’E]. Munida gordoni Vereshchaka, 2005: 139 , fig. 2, tab. 1–2 [type locality: off Wairarapa coast, New Zealand, 41 ° 35.45 – 34.88 ’S, 175 ° 46.39–47.23 ’E, 1000–1400 m] [new synonymy].

Material examined. NIWA 4065, H- 880, ovigerous female (15.0 mm), off Wairarapa coast, New Zealand, 41 ° 35.45 – 34.88 ’S, 175 ° 46.39–47.23 ’E, 1000–1400 m, mud, TAN0107/326, 24 May 2001 (holotype of Munida gordoni Vereshchaka, 2005 ).

Remarks. Munida gordoni Vereshchaka, 2005 , recently described from off the Wairarapa coast is indistinguishable from M. isos Ahyong & Poore, 2004 , described from southeastern Australia; the two species are herein synonymised.

Two of three species described by Vereshchaka (2005) are represented in the NORFANZ collection: Agononida nielbrucei and Munida grieveae (synonymised above with M. endeavourae Ahyong & Poore, 2004 ). Although M. isos was not represented in the NORFANZ collection, it is reported here to clarify the status of M. gordoni , the third species described from New Zealand by Vereshchaka (2005).

Distribution. Southeastern Australia, from Broken Bay to Tasmania, and now from New Zealand; 640– 1700 m ( Ahyong & Poore 2004).
