Comment(s) on data
Nomura & Anker (2001: 52, Crustacean Research) - Banner & Banner (1985) concluded that Neoalpheopsis hiatti Banner, 1953 and Alpheopsis hummelincki Schmitt, 1936 are junior synonym of N. euryone, and Chace (1988) also concurred with this opinion. However, this synonimization remains questionable. Although it is undoubted that N. hiatti and A. hummelincki belong to the genus Parabetaeus, the systematic position of these species should be carefully examined again.
