Lysmata cf. intermedia ( Kingsley, 1878) 

Hippolysmata intermedia Kingsley, 1878: 90  .

Material examined. 1 f, 1 ni, 03.VIII. 2008, Cairú, Tassimirim Beach, Boipeba Island, MZUESC 1323. Distribution. Western Atlantic—Florida Keys to Trinidad and Tobago, Curaçao and Brazil (Pernambuco to Rio de Janeiro) ( Christoffersen 1998; d’Udekem d’Acoz 2000; Almeida et al. 2007 b).

Ecological notes. Material from Boipeba Island was collected on a reef, within crevices of calcareous algae concretions, at a salinity of 33 psu.

Previous records. Camamu Bay ( Almeida et al. 2007 b, as Lysmata cf. intermedia  ).

Remarks. Lysmata intermedia  is a species complex ( Anker et al. 2009 b). Almeida et al. (2007 b) reported some differences between L. cf. intermedia  from Camamu Bay, Bahia  , and topotypical specimens of L. intermedia (d’Udekem d’Acoz 2000)  . The main difference observed (here confirmed by the analysis of two additional individuals) was in the number of articles in the P 2 carpus (23–25, more commonly 23 in L. cf. intermedia  vs. 25–31, more commonly 28–30 in L. intermedia  ). Other small differences were observed in the number of articles in the P 2 merus and in the spinulation of the P 3 –P 5 merus and propodus, suggesting that this material belongs to a hitherto undescribed species.
