Abstract: Diallagomolgus n. gen., from hard corals of the genus Cyphastrea
in intertidal pools in New Caledonia, is characterized by the third segment of
the second antenna being longer than the fourth segment, the mandible bearing
a triangular proximally directed toothlike process on its base, and the second
maxilla having an extremely abbreviated lash. Two new species of Diallagomolgus
are described, Diallagomolgus productus from Cyphastrea chalcidicum
and Cyphastrea gardineri and Diallagomolgus vicinus from Cyphastrea chalcidicum.
A key to genera of Lichomolgidae with only one terminal element
on two-segmented endopod of leg 4 is provided.
