MARINE BIODIVERSITY OF THE SOUTH CHINA SEA:
A CHECKLIST OF STOMATOPOD CRUSTACEA
- Study on literature reveals that the stomatopod fauna of
the South China Sea and the adjacent waters is very rich,
although some areas such as the offshore waters of Borneo
and the islands located at the southern part of this region
are still very poorly surveyed. A total of 116 species
belonging to 51 genera of 13 families and four superfamiles.
The Superfamily Bathysquilloidea is represented by two
species of one genus, the Gonodactyloidea is represented by
39 species of 19 genera, the Lysiosquilloidea is represented
by 14 species of eight genera and the Squilloidea is
represented by 58 species of 32 genera.
