Abstract
    Eight new species in five genera are described, one of the genera being new. The mangrove fauna of Pselaphidae seems to be rich and entirely novel. This material in largely associated with mud-lobster (Thalassina) mound systems which provide very uneven topography. Most species are however fully intertidal. The intertidal forms have dense pilosity, long appendages and large eyes, and are flightless. Some speculations are made on the significance and consequences of this.
