DOI : 10.4194/trjfas.2010.0412 Viewed : 3917 - Downloaded : 3786 During a recent ecological study, an unfamiliar shrimp species was encountered in summer 2008 in the downstream of Bahmanshir River (15 km to Persian Gulf) in Abadan city, Iran. This paper represents the first record of Exopalaemon styliferus (Milne-Edwards, 1840) of the family Palaemonidae from Iran. This species has been recorded from the north coast of Borneo and Indonesia westward through Thailand and India to Pakistan and in Iraq and Kuwait waters. This finding extends our knowledge on the global form of distribution of E. styliferus. Keywords : Palaemonidae shrimp, Exopalaemon styliferus, new record, Bahmanshir River, Iran
