Collections of pontoniid shrimps made by the author in the western Indian Ocean from 1959 to 1962 have indicated that a rich fauna belonging to this subfamily is to be found on the coral reefs of East Africa and the oceanic islands. Subsequently collections made in the South China Sea have indicated that knowledge of the Pontoniinae is still far from complete. The opportunity is taken in this paper to describe some of the more interesting forms, all of which, except one, have been found in association with invertebrate hosts.Nos. I and II of this series of notes have been published in Crustaceana (Bruce, 1966, 1966a).
