Abstract

Since 1855, 28 species of clam shrimps (Laevicaudata, Spinicaudata, Cyclestherida) have been described from Australia, although three have been synonymized. One new species of Eocyzicus is described herein. It has a distinctive rostrum that is slightly different in male and females and the clasper has a three segmented palp. With this new species the Australian fauna comprises 26 valid species of clam shrimps. We provide a list of all described species, including their known localities and a key to the genera of Australian clam shrimps.
