Abstract: ABSTRACT: This report is based on 19 species of hermit crabs collected in eastern
New Guinea in 1969. One, Clibanarius englaucus, is a new species and several others
were not previously recorded from the area. Detailed observations on color in
life were made for most of these forms. The report includes all published records
of hermit crabs from the Territory of Papua and New Guinea. Identifications are
given for associated organisms in the following groups: Cnidaria (Anthozoa),
Mollusca (Gastropoda), Acarina (Mesostigmata), Cirripedia (Rhizocephala), and
Isopoda (Epicaridea and Plabellifera).
