Decapoda - Brachyura - Portunidae - Laleonectes

Laleonectes stridens Crosnier & Moosa, 2002

Distribution : Central Pacific: French Polynesia (Austral, Tuamotu) - 130-260 m.

Remarks : Possibly present at Rapa, south of Austral Island, where a female specimen (see photographs under L. nipponensis) is attributed with hesitation to L. nipponensis (pers. com. A. Crosnier 14/08/2002). A male would be necessary to confirm this identification.
