Abstract
    A new species of pontoniine shrimp, Dactylonia franseni sp. nov., (Crustacea: Decapoda: Palaemonidae) from Mombasa, Kenya, is described and illustrated on the basis of a single specimen found in association with a tunicate, Ascidia sp. The new species is closely related to D. ascidicola but separated by a suite of small characters. Attention is drawn to the strong association of Dactylonia species with ascidians of the genus Ascidia.
