Abstract: A new species of caridean shrimp of the family Rhynchocinetidae,
Rhynchocinetes rathbunae Okuno, is described and illustrated based on six
males, an ovigerous female, a second female, and a juvenile from the Hawaiian
Islands. It is closely related to R. brucei Okuno from the tropical western Pacific
and R. rugulosus Stimpson from southern Australian waters, but is readily distinguishable
from the two latter species by absence of a podobranch on the
second maxilliped, the longer rostrum, forms of the stylocerite and endopod of
male first pleopod, meral dentition of the ambulatory pereiopods, and the color
in life.
