Abstract: An alpheid shrimp, Bannereus anomalus, new genus, new species,
from the Marian Plateau in the Coral Sea is described here. The shrimps are
associates of hexactinellid sponges from depths of about 350 m, an alpheid
association not previously recorded. They are unusual, among the Alpheidae, in
that they possess mandibles without palps. The genus is named in honor of the
late Professor A. H. Banner in recognition of his great contribution to the
systematics of the family Alpheidae.
