Comment(s) on data
Lysmata grabhami is an Atlantic species and it is most probable that record for New Caledonia by Ledoyer (1984) is L. amboinensis instead. The two species have a very similar color patter but the white line on the red back is broken on the tailfan for L. amboinensis while it is continuous in L. grabhami.
