Abstract
    Two new subspecies of the species group D. bahirensis are described: D. bahirensis sirbonica from the metahaline waters of the Bardawil Lagoon on the Mediterranean shore of Sinai and D. bahirensis hebraica from Nahal Taninim, an oligohaline coastal stream in Israel. The two subspecies are living in extremely different environments and can easily be separated by the structure of the appendix masculina and the statolith and a series of meristic differences of the telson and body appendages.
