Abstract
    A new species of caridean shrimp, Gnathophyllum taylori sp.nov., is described from south-eastern Australia. The newspecies most closely resembles two Atlantic species, G. modestum Hay, 1917, and G. elegans Risso, 1816, but isreadily distinguished by its banded rather than spotted body colour pattern. Gnathophyllum taylori is the third Indo-WestPacific species to be recognised. It differs from G. americanum, with which it can be sympatric, by having fewer andnarrower dark bands on the body as well as by the rostral dentition, morphology of the orbit and dactyli of the walkinglegs. The identity of G. fasciolatum Stimpson, 1860, a junior synonym of G. americanum, is fixed by neotype selection.
