JournalBijdragen tot de Dierkunde
AbstractA new genus and species of Amphipoda is described from cave waters on Providenciales (Caicos Islands) as Spelaeonicippe provo. Another species belonging to the same new genus is known from a cave on Lanzarote (Canary Islands). The genus belongs to the Pardaliscidae, a predominantly bathyal/ abyssal family. A possible evolutionary scenario for both species is discussed.
