Spongicoloides novaezelandiae Baba, 1979: 311  .— Goy, 1980: 770.—Baba, 1983: 477.— Saito et al., 2006: 224.— Burukovsky, 2009: 498.— Goy, 2010: 227.— De Grave & Fransen, 2011: 252.

Material examined. New Caledonia. BIOCAL, stn CP61, 24° 11 ’S, 167 ° 32 ’E, 1070 m, 2.IX.1985, 1 female, (MNHN-Na 11996).—BIOCAL, stn CP60, 24°01’S, 167 °08”E, 1480–1530 m, 2.IX.1985, 1 female ov. (MNHN- Na 11997).—BIOCAL stn DW79, 20° 40 ’S, 166 ° 52 ’E, 1320–1380 m, 5.IX.1985, 1 male (MNHN-Na 11998).— CALSUB Plongée 0 4, N. Lifou, 20 ° 35 ’S, 167 ° 12 ’E, 2380 m, 23.II. 1989, in Euplectella  sp., 1 female (MNHN-Na 11999).

Measurements (mm). Females, PCL: 7.9, 9.8, 12.3; RCL: 10.5, 13.3, 16.3; TL: 27.4, 34.0, 35.0. Male, PCL 5.9; RCL 8.7; TL: 21.1. Eggs in later stage of development measured 1.65 × 1.75 mm.

Distribution. New Zealand, New Caledonia, Tasmania, Fiji, Indian Ocean, and Madagascar (see Remarks).

Coloration. ( Fig. 11View FIGURE 11) Body and appendages transparent with yellowish tinge from internal organs; tip of rostrum white; eyes white; tail fan whitish.

Hosts. The female collected during the CALSUB expedition was found in a hexactinellid sponge of the genus Euplectella  . This specimen also represents the deepest (2380m) record for any stenopodidean shrimp. Five specimens collected off Fiji (see remarks) were also collected inside a species of Euplectella  .

Remarks. Baba’s (1979) holotype was collected at a depth of about 1000 m in the Chatham Rise off New Zealand. The four New Caledonian specimens presented here and 13 additional specimens examined from New Zealand ( NIWA 40567, 40638), Tasmania (MV J 42176View Materials), Madagascar ( MNHN), Indian Ocean ( NTM Cr 008132), and Fiji ( MNHN Na-11994, 11995; USNM 256953) demonstrate some of the variation seen in this species. The carapace bears a shallow rostral and hepatic groove, occasionally minute antennal and branchiostegal spines; 3–5 pterygostomian spines ( Figs. 9View FIGURE 9 A–B, 10 A–D). Rostrum with 8–14 dorsal, 1–3 ventral spines; scaphocerite with 4– 11 outer margin teeth. Telson with 4–11 spines on median carinae, 6–17 lateral border teeth; 6–12 posterior margin teeth. Third pereiopod ischia bear 1–4 spines; fourth and fifth pereiopods have 10–26 movable propodal spines.
