Material examined. St 17, 10/ 11 /2009, 11h– 14 h, North reef, 12 ° 34 ' 49.93 "S, 45 ° 5 ' 52.62 "E, coll. KUW fieldwork, scuba diving 22 m, sediment suction pump, 1 male (LC 2.5 mm), (both second pereiopods lost, distal half of telson lost, rostral formula: 1 + 5 / 2) MNHN-Na 17558; St 23, 13/ 11 /09, 11 h– 13 h, Choizil pass "Patate à Teddy", 12 ° 40 ' 56.91 "S, 44 ° 57 ' 51.63 "E, coll. KUW fieldwork, scuba diving 15–30 m, collapsed edge reef, 1 male (LC 2.5 mm), (rostral formula: 1 + 6 / 2), MNHN-Na 17570.

Distribution. Type locality Iles Glorieuses. Also known from Kenya, Australia (Western Australia), Loyalty Islands, Polynesia, Marquesas Islands.

Remarks. The specimens with their rostral formulae 1 + 5 / 2 and 1 + 6 / 2 seem closer to Palaemonella disalvoi Fransen, 1987   , not 1 + 7 / 3 as in the type of P. crosnieri   . However, their other characteristics agree with the description and illustrations of Bruce (1978), and the type locality of P. crosnieri   is Iles Glorieuses, 20m, and known also from Loyalty Islands, 2–40m ( Li and Bruce, 2006), West Australia (Bruce, 1992, 2007), Marquesas Is., Polynesia ( Li, 2008 a), its range is much wider than that of P. disalvoi   , which is known only from its type locality Easter Island at 36 m (or 15–60m, DiSalvo et al., 1988). We herewith tentatively treat this specimens as P. cro   s n ie r i, although their rostral formulae do not agree with the type. The species was not previously recorded from Mayotte. The specimen of MNHN-Na 17558 was collected together with 1 female of Cuapetes ensifrons (Dana, 1852)   (MNHN-Na 17557) at Station 17.
