Abstract
    A single specimen of a small new hippolytid shrimp, captured between 65-120 m off New Caledonia, is described and illustrated. A new genus, Gelastreutes, is designated for its accom-modation, indicating its relationship with the genera Gelastocaris Kemp, Latreutes Stimpson and Paralatreutes Kemp. The new species, G. crosnieri, is remarkable for its robust, highly calcified body and its similarity in general body form to Gelastocaris paronae suggests that it is also probably a commensal species, possibly an associate of sponges.
