Abstract

The crustaceans of non-marine environments on Chilean oceanic islands have been poorly studied, principally due to their geographical isolation and difficult access. The aim of this study is to present a checklist of non-marine (non-hexapod) crustaceans on Chilean oceanic islands based on a review of the literature, with hopes of stimulating further research on this poorly known fauna. The checklist includes records of 27 species from Easter Island and the Juan Fernández Island archipelago, and reveals an absence of records from Sala y Gómez, San Ambrosio, and San Felix Islands.
