On two alpheids from Araçá (São Paulo, Brazil) with description of a new species of Leptalpheus (Decapoda: Caridea: Alpheidae)Annalen des Naturhistorischen Museums in Wien (1999)
Sampling for infaunal decapods from a tidal flat at Praia do Araçá (São Sebastião, São Paulo) has yielded two members of the family Alpheidae, one representing a new species of the genus Leptalpheus WILLIAMS, 1965. Leptalpheus axianassae sp.n. is described from sixteen specimens taken from burrows of the thalassinid Axianassa australis RODRIGUES & SHIMIZU 1992 with which it is associated. The second species, Automate evermanni RATHBUN, 1901 was also collected with a yabby pump at this tidal flat, but never together with the thalassinid.
