The first record of Periclimenes platalea Holthuis, 1951 (Decapoda, Pontoniinae) in the western Atlantic
Holthuis (1951) described Periclimenes platalea on the basis of specimens from São Vicente (Cape Verde Islands) and off French Guinea (present day Guinea). Since then the species has only been recorded from São Tiago (Cape Verde Islands) by Wirtz & d’Udekem d’Acoz (2001) and from São Tomé Island in the Gulf of Guinea (Wirtz, 2003). Although no host association was recorded in the original description (Holthuis, 1951), Wirtz & d’Udekem d’Acoz (2001) record P. platalea from Antipathes spp. (Cnidaria, Antipatharia) and Leptogorgia gaini Stiasny, 1940 (Cnidaria, Gorgonacea), whilst Wirtz (2003) records the species from Leptogorgia sp.

Abstract

Holthuis (1951) described Periclimenes platalea on the basis of specimens from São Vicente (Cape Verde Islands) and off French Guinea (present day Guinea). Since then the species has only been recorded from São Tiago (Cape Verde Islands) by Wirtz & d’Udekem d’Acoz (2001) and from São Tomé Island in the Gulf of Guinea (Wirtz, 2003). Although no host association was recorded in the original description (Holthuis, 1951), Wirtz & d’Udekem d’Acoz (2001) record P. platalea from Antipathes spp. (Cnidaria, Antipatharia) and Leptogorgia gaini Stiasny, 1940 (Cnidaria, Gorgonacea), whilst Wirtz (2003) records the species from Leptogorgia sp.
