Abstract
    Galatheid crustaceans of the genera Agononida Baba & de Saint Laurent, 1996 and Miinida Leach, 1820 collected in Vanuatu, during the MUSORSTOM 8 cruise (September-October, 1994) have been studied. The collection contains 8 species of the genus Agononida and 25 belonging to the genus Munida. Two species are described as new: A. alisae and M. congesta. A. alisae, close to A. callirhoe (Macpherson, 1994), can be distinguished easily by the spines of the carapace and the antennal peduncle. M. congesta is close to M. miliaris Henderson, 1855, but is distinguished by the shape and the spines of the chelipeds.
