James K. Lowry, Charles Oliver Coleman

Abstract


Curiotalitrus, a new genus of terrestrial land-hoppers (Amphipoda, Talitridae) is described from rain-forests in the Phil-ippines. Curiotalitrus includes one species: C. curioi (Javier & Coleman, 2010). Informal Talitrus and Orchestia groups are proposed based on the condition of the male second gnathopod.
