Abstract

Cerapus oceanicus and C. pacificus are described from Samoa and Fiji. They are distinguished from other species in the Cerapus group mainly on the morphology of the second gnathopods. A discussion of genera in the Cerapus group indicates that Runanga and Baracuma may be based on gradational characters.
