Decapoda - Anomura - Munididae - Sadayoshia

Sadayoshia lipkei Macpherson & Baba, 2010



World Distribution
Macpherson & Baba (2010: 439) - French Polynesia, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Loyalty Islands and Chesterfield Islands, from 5 to 500 m. Some stations covered a wide depth range (e.g. BENTHAUS, DW 1959, 95-380 m). Considering that most occurrences of species of Sadayoshia are shallower than 100 m, those stations covering a wide depth range should be considered with caution. The occurrence of this species in deeper waters (BENTHAUS, DW 1959, 700-1350 m) is also dubious. Macpherson & Baba (2012: 31), specimen from New Caledonia (Grotte Merlet) and Chesterfields (Campaign CHALCAL) are S. acamar sp. nov., part of specimens from Lifou Island are Sadayoshia miyakei.

Environnement : Marine - Substrat/Association : Associated with corals (facultative)

Vertical range : Shallow-waters (0-100 m) - Min-Max observed: 5-500 m
