New records and new species of the genus Lebbeus (Caridea: Hippolytidae) in the eastern Pacific Ocean by Mary K. Wicksten and Matilde Méndez G., Bull. Southern California Acad. Sci., 81(3):106-120, 1982. Lebbeus scrippsi n. sp. and L. splendidus n. sp. are described from off the coasts of Peru and Chile. Lebbeus vicinus montereyensis n. subsp. is described from Monterey Bay, California and off western Mexico. Southern range extensions are given for L. grandimanus, L. lagunae. L. possjeticus, and L. zebra. Lebbeus brandti is reported for the first time in the eastern Pacific. We suggest that L. curvirostris Zarenkov may belong to the genus Nauticaris, and that L. bidentatus Zarenkov may be a southern race of L. washingtonianus (Rathbun). A key is presented for all the species of Lebbeus in the eastern Pacific.
