Abstract

Joeropsis sandybrucei sp. nov., is described from shallow-water habitats (intertidal to 3 metres) on the Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, the second record of the genus from Australia and the first from Australian coral reefs. The species is identified by the relatively wide body (less than 3.0 times as long as wide), serration and shape of the pleotelson, quadrate coxal shape, relatively closely spaced pereonites and anteriorly concave pseudorostrum; in life J. sandybrucei is white with a broad dark-brown band across the head.
