Description

CEPHALOTHORAX. Antennal spine below suborbital angle. Pterygostomian margin sub rectangular. Rostrum ( Fig. 13k View Fig ): 0.5–1.4 of cl, reaching to or overreaching distal end of scaphocerite, armed with 9–17 teeth on dorsal margin, 3–5 of them situated on carapace behind orbital margin, ventral margin with 2–7 teeth. Eyes well developed, anterior end reaching to 0.63 length of basal segment of antennular peduncle. Antennular peduncle 0.56–0.57 (♀) times as long as carapace. Anterolateral angle reaching 0.33 length of second segment, basal segment of antennular peduncle longer than sum of second and third segment lengths, second segment distinctly longer than third segment. Stylocerite sharp, long, reaching to about half of second segment of antennular peduncle.

PEREIOPODS. Epipods on first four pereiopods. P1 ( Fig. 13 View Fig a–b): chela about 1.9–2.4 times as long as wide, movable finger 2.1–2.7 times as long as wide, 0.4–0.8 times length of palm; carpus 1.2–1.7 times as long as wide. P2 ( Fig. 13c View Fig ) more slender and longer than first pereiopod, with chela 2.2–3.0 times as long as wide: movable finger 3.0–4.8 times as long as wide, 1.0–1.7 times length of palm; carpus slender, 4.2–6.7 times as long as wide. P3 ( Fig. 13d View Fig ): dactylus ( Fig. 13f View Fig ) 2.9–4.0 times as long as wide (terminal spiniform seta included), with 6–7 spiniform setae on flexor margin in addition to terminal one; propodus 8.1–14.0 times as long as wide, 3.5–5.3 times as long as dactylus. P5 ( Fig. 13e View Fig ): dactylus ( Fig. 13g View Fig ) 3.3–4.4 times as long as wide as with 26–31 spiniform setae on flexor margin; propodus 12.3–20.5 times as long as wide, 4.4–6.2 times as long as dactylus.

ABDOMEN. Third abdominal somite with moderately convex dorsal profile. Sixth abdominal somite 0.48 as long as carapace, 1.5 times as long as fifth somite, shorter than telson.

TELSON ( Fig. 13j View Fig ). 2.5 times as long as wide, with 5–6 pairs of dorsal spinules and one pair of dorsolateral spinules; posterior margin with a median process, broadly convex with 7–12 plumose intermediate setae much longer than lateral.

MALE PLEOPODS. Pl1: endopod subtriangular, 2.9 times as long as wide, reaching 0.37 times length of endopod, with an appendix on subdistal outer margin which reaches beyond distal end of endopod with most of its length. Pl2: appendix masculina reaching 0.57 times length of endopod; appendix interna reaching 0.60 of appendix masculina.

PRE- ANAL CARINA ( Fig. 13h View Fig ). High, unarmed.

UROPODAL DIAERESIS ( Fig. 13i View Fig ). With 17–19 spinules.

EGGS. Size: 0.21–0.33 × 0.33–0.49.

Habitat

This species lives in a typical brackish water environment (brackishwater pools or lower part of rivers, near the estuary). The species is rarely found over the superior limit of the tide-influenced zone, and was not found in the true freshwater zone.

Colour pattern ( Fig. 26B View Fig )

Body usually dark red to black, with a lighter dorsal band from the rostrum to the telson and sometimes white stripes on each abdominal somite.

Distribution

This species occurs in the Solomon Islands (Kolombangara), in the Vanuatu archipelago (Malekula and Santo Islands) and in Indonesia (Sulawesi).

Remarks

Our specimens are distinguished from the holotype of C. buelheri   from New Ireland by its long P5 propodus, 12.3–20.5 times as long as wide (vs short P5 propodus 9.4 in the holotype of C. buehleri   ) and 4.4–6.2 times as long as the dactylus (vs 3.8). In contrast, they fit well with the holotype of C. gueryi   from Santo (vs 12.3–15.9 and 4.6–5.2 in the holotype of C. gueryi   , respectively). However, if we include other specimens of C. buehleri   , the characters overlap, which is the reason why we previously mistakenly placed them in synonymy ( de Mazancourt et al. 2017a). These two species can thus be considered to be cryptic.

According to our molecular results, studied specimens from Sulawesi, the Solomon Islands and the Vanuatu archipelago belong to C. gueryi   .
