Abstract

Thirty-two species of pelagic decapod shrimps are recorded from 57 stations off the southeastern coast of South Africa. The material was trawled from between 200 m and the surface. The assemblage includes typical shelf forms like Solenocera africana Stebbing, 1917 and Pasiphaea semispinosa Holthuis, 1951, as well as typically oceanic species of Sergestes H. Milne Edwards, 1830, Sergia Stimpson, 1860 and Gennadas Bate, 1881. Several species seem to co-occur consistently, especially in the oceanic component of the fauna.
