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.
