Abstract: Hippolyte acuta (Stimpson) is the only species of this genus now
reported from the central Pacific. Examination of several specimens indicates
that it is identical with the Indo-Malayan H. ventricosa H. Milne-Edwards.
Two other species, H. edmondsoni n. sp. and H. jarvisensis n. sp., have been
newly found in the Hawaiian Islands and the Line Islands, respectively. These
three species are described, illustrated, and compared to other known species.
