Stomatopod Crustaceans from Mayotte Island (Crustacea, Hoplocarida)

Joseph Poupin, Regis Cleva, Jean-Marie Bouchard, Vincent Dinhut, Jacques Dumas (Author)

A collection of stomatopods assembled during the KUW 2009 expedition to Mayotte Island and deposited in the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle Paris is studied with a review of previous records from Comoros and Mayotte Island. In total 14 species are recognized 3 of them being new records for this region. A brief comparison with other regions studied for stomatopods indicates that sampling is still insufficient in Comoros and Mayotte and that dozens of species remain to be inventoried in that region.
