Abstract
    Twenty-nine species of marine decapod Crustacea, specimens of which are deposited in the collections of the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris, are reported for the first time from the Lattakia area in Syria. The number of Decapoda currently known from this part of the Syrian coast is 88, of which 15 are Lessepsian migrants. Among the latter, four are reported for the first time from Syria: Alpheus lobidens De Haan, 1849, Ixa monodi Holthuis & Gottlieb, 1956, Micippa thalia (Herbst, 1803), and Thalamita poissonii (Audouin, 1826). The main sites for prospection are, from north to south: Al Hamam Island, Al Bdroussieh, Al Manarah, Om Tior, Bourj Islam, Ash Shamieh, Ibn Hani (Bourj Al Kassab), Alsahta'e Alazrak, Afamia, and the port of Lattakia.
