Ecological notes. Mainly in mangroves and estuaries, on sand-mud bottoms, under rocks and wood; also in beds of the oyster Crassostrea rhizophorae Guilding, 1828   . Salinity range: 3–20 psu. Depth range: intertidal to 30 m ( Christoffersen 1984).

Previous records. Ilhéus (Almeida et al. 2006).

Remarks. Alpheus pontederiae   resembles A. heterochaelis   in the presence of balaeniceps setae on the fingers of the minor chela and by the rounded ventral margin of pollex of larger chela, among other characters ( Christoffersen 1984), but differs from the latter species by two characters mentioned in the section on A. heterochaelis   (see above).
