During the Snellius-II Expedition to Indonesian waters in 1984, ten species of shrimp were collected associated with Anthozoa (Actiniaria: 6 species; Corallimorpharia: 1 species; Scleractinia: 3 species). These species are: Thor amboinensis (Hippolytidae), Periclimenes brevicarpalis, P. aff. inornatus, P. ornatus, P. holthuisi, P. magnificus, Pliopontonia furtiva, Paratypton siebenrocki, Philarius gerlachei and Jocaste japonica (all Palaemonidae, Pontoniinae). Four new associations and four new records for Indonesian waters were established. Biogeographical aspects, as well as taxonomic problems in some groups are discussed.
