Abstract
    During the cruise TARASOC (September and October 2009) to the Tarava Seamounts, and Tuamotu and Society Archipelagos (French Polynesia), numerous specimens of squat lobsters belonging to the family Munididae (Agononida Baba & de Saint Laurent, 1996, Babamunida Cabezas et al., 2008, Bathymunida Balss, 1914, Heteronida Baba & de Saint Laurent, 1996, Munida Leach, 1820, Onconida Baba & de Saint Laurent, 1996, Paramunida Baba, 1988) and the family Eumunididae (Eumunida Smith, 1883) were collected. The study of these specimens revealed the presence of 27 species. Three species are described as new: Bathymunida corniculata n. sp., Munida atarapa n. sp. and M. rona n. sp.
