Parhippolyte aff. mistica - Unpublished sp., ?coll. & prov. det. Paulay/Poupin, Rangiroa (from photograph, ?FLMNH-UF) (first record for FP). - AAMP, Marquesas, 2012, Leg 3, St. MQ1-GR, Nuku Hiva, 8-10 m, coll. Chevaldonne ?, sample PC2; species of this genus such as P. mistica and P. uveae, have a similar color pattern. Occurrence of P. mistica in FP must be confirmed by careful examination of specimen(s) collected as P. uveae as a wide IWP distribution and could be in the Marquesas.
