Abstract: Thirty-three species of caridean decapods have been identified
from samples taken from the guyots and their vicinity, a little-sampled region of
the mid-Pacific Ocean. Considering the oligotrophic character of the environment,
a remarkably diverse collection has been collected. For the most part the
species are mesopelagic and bathypelagic and have a widespread, if not cosmopolitan,
distribution. Nevertheless, for many species these records extend
their distribution much farther north and east in the Pacific than was previously
known. The few epibenthic species present are more circumscribed in their distribution.
Two of these were found to be previously undescribed and are described
here.
