Abstract: Two new species of Callianassa are described from Port Phillip Bay
subtidal sediments. Their systematic position and their status within the genus are
briefly discussed. The distribution of the four species known from Port Phillip
Bay correlates with that of sediment type and depth. C. arenosa n. sp. was distributed
on silty sand sediments and was most dense between 13-19 m depth. C.limosa n. sp.
was most dense (over 1,000 individuals per m2) on silty clay sediments below 15 m.
C. ceramica Fulton & Grant occurred at low densities on sandy sediments less than
10m depth and has previously been reported from intertidal muddy flats along with
C. australiensis (Dana).
