2008 Decapode collect

Collections of Decapoda that I have made during my stay include one hundred or so species, a lot of them entered in the Biocode database after common sampling in the mangrove. Estimated number of new taxa is about 10-15 % a figure that can appear modest but that must be regarded in the view of intensive previous sampling of Decapoda in French Polynesia. Also, this figure does not include the alpheid shrimps studied separately by A. Anker.
