2 A New Species of the Genus Melita (Crustacea: Amphipoda) from a High Tide Pool at Shirahama, on the West Coast of the Kii Peninsula, Japan SHIGEYUKI YAMATO Seto Marine Biological Laboratory, Kyoto University, Shirahama, Wakayama , Japan With Text-figures 1-4 Abstract A new amphipod crustacean, Melita shiodamari, is described from a high tide rock pool at Shirahama, on the west coast of the Kii Peninsula in Japan. The new species is very different from many Melita species, but resembles M. plumulosa Zeidler, 1989, M. awa Barnard, 1972b and M. matilda Barnard, 1972a from the Southern Hemisphere in the general morphology, and especially in the peculiar morphology of the gnathopods 1 and 2. Tegano seticornis (Bousfield, 1970), Sriha vagabunda (Karaman, 1984) and Fiha schminkei Stock, 1988 are also similar to the new species, and should be transferred to the genus A1elita. All of these species possibly constitute a subgroup, awa-complex, of the genus Melita. Taxonomy of other related genera from the Indo-Pacific, most of which are monotypic, are also considered. The relationship and evolution of these allied species and genera are briefly discussed. Key words: Crustacea, amphipods, Melita, awa-complex, Indo-Pacific, monotypic genera So far, 15 species of the amphipod genus Melita have been reported from Japanese waters (lshimaru, 1994). Amphipods collected from a high tide rock pool at Shirahama on the west coast of the Kii Peninsula were found to belong to a previously undescribed species, which seemed to resemble species of Melita from the Southern Hemisphere more closely than other Japanese species of the genus. Therefore, a detailed morphological study of the newly discovered animals was conducted and comparisons were made with related amphipods. Abbreviations used in the figures.

3 380 S. YAMATO deposited in the collection of the Seto Marine Biological Laboratory. Type locality: A high tide pool (about 10m in width, lm in depth) on the beach, Nishitani (33 38'N, 'E), near the mouth of the Tonda-gawa River, Shirahama, Wakayama. The pool is a fissure-like depression between two small rock hills, and is connected to the open sea only at high spring tide. The leaves of land plants and stranded algae were accumulating and decaying in the pool, making the water smell slightly of hydrogen sulfide. The salinity of the water in the pool measured on another day was 32 %o, slightly lower than that of the open sea. li1elita nagatai, Corophium sp. and Jassa sp. were collected from the pool.

8 MELITA FROM HIGH TIDE POOL 385 Variation. Some larger specimens with strong dorsal median tooth on pleosomites 1-3 and urosome 1; smaller specimens with tooth only on urosome 1. Etymology. The specific name of this new species means "tide pool" in Japanese; as noun in' apposition. Remarks. This new species IS unique among the Japanese Melita species and is easily distinguishable by the following characteristics: pleosomes 1-3 and urosome 1 with median dorsal tooth; postantennal sinus without notch; antennae setose; coxal plates shallow; posterior margin of coxa 4 not excavated; article 6 of male gnathopod 1 not excavate on inner surface, with hump on anterior margin, its palm produced, its posterodistal margin serrate, bending inwards; gnathopod 2 not setose on inner surface of article 6, with hollow for receiving tip of dactyl; article 2 of pereopods 5-7 not lobed posterodistally; telsonic lobes short, their apex not elongate. Moreover, the mouthpart morphology also shows peculiar characteristics in the short mandible palp with only one seta at the apex, the 3-lobed right lacinia mobilis, the absence of accessory plates on its molar, the inner plate of maxilla 2 with only a single row of setae along medial margin, the small inner lobe of the lower lip. This new species resembles three species from the Southern Hemisphere. Melita plumulosa Zeidler, 1989 from Australia is characteristic in bearing many plumose setae on most of the appendages. Aside from the setosity, few differences distinguish M. plumulosa from M. shiodamari; these include the long palpar article 3 as long as its article 2 and the absence of a dorsal tooth on pleosomes 1-3. Melita awa Barnard, 1972b from New Zealand differs from M. shiodamari in the longer mandible palp and the absence of dorsal tooth on pleosomes 1-3 and urosome 1. Melita matilda Barnard, 1972a from Australia is less similar and is different from M. shiodamari in the absence of a hump on gnathopod 1, the presence of a deeper hollow on gnathopod 2 and long setation on pereopods 5-7. Discussion Melita shiodamari,.m. plumulosa, M. awa and M. matilda are quite distinct from other Melita species. Most of the differences between M. shiodamari and other Japanese Melita species are also pertinent to the other three species. It is possible that M. shiodamari and the three southern species constitute a closely related subgroup in the genus Melita, and I call it tentatively the awa-complex hereafter. The strong affinity between awa-complex and species of other related genera is noticeable. They are Tegano seticornis (Bousfield, 1970) and Sriha vagabunda (Karaman, 1984). The former species was reported at first as Melita seticornis from the Solomon Islands and the Bismarck Archipelago (also see Bousfield, 1971), and then moved to a monotypic new genus Tegano by Barnard & Karaman ( 1982). The latter species was first reported as Q_uadrus vagabundus from Sri Lanka, but its generic name was replaced by the new name Sriha by Stock ( 1988), due to junior homonymy. These two genera are diagnosed mainly by the reduced condition of the mandible palp:
9 386 S. YAMATO 2-articulate in Tegano;!-articulate in Sriha. However, these two genera share many common characteristics with the awa-compiex, such as the setose antennae and the morphology of the gnathopods and pereopods. Fiha schminkei Stock, 1988 from Fiji, which bears a vestigial,!-articulate mandible palp, also resembles the awa-complex, though only females are known for this species. If the reduced condition of the mandible palp were not emphasized as a taxonomic character, these three genera would be recognized as lvlelita. It is true that the mouthpart morphology has traditionally been emphasized for the higher taxonomy of amphipods, but dividing genera only by the reduced articulation of the mandible palp is too simplistic. I think that all three species constituting the monotypic genera Tegano, Sriha and Fiha should be transferred to the genus Melita and placed in the awa-compiex at the present stage. In addition to these genera, there are several genera that show a general resemblance to the awa-complex, but differ in a few features by which they are placed in separate genera. Two genera, Rotomelita Barnard, 1977 which includes two species from Hawaii and Nainaloa Karaman & Barnard, 1979 (for Melita latimerus Bousfield, 1971) from the Bismarck Archipelago, are possibly related to the awa-complex, particularly in the distally dilated and minutely serrate palm of gnathopod 1. Nainaloa differs from all other species compared above in the broad and posterodistally lobed article 2 of pereopods 5-7. Both genera are diagnosed chiefly by the quadrate telsonic lobe. However, this characteristic is not so unusual, because the telsonic lobe of the awa-complex is shorter than that of other Melita species. Moreover, Psammoniphargus Ruffo, 1956 from Madagascar, Phreatomelita Ruffo, 1979 from Iran and Spiniferopisella Karam an, 1984 (for Eriopisella spinosa Ledoyer, 1979 from Java) also resemble the awa-complex in the morphology of gnathopod 1 and mouthparts, but differ in the broad article 2 of pereopods 5-7. Although the relationship between these genera has been discussed by several authors (e.g. Karaman, 1984; Stock, 1988), the affinity to Melita has been rarely considered. No ten boom ( 1988) applied numerical phylogenetic methods to Pseudoniphargus and related genera of the Hadzioidea, in which only three European species of Melita were investigated. The analyses supported a close relationship among the genera mentioned above, but did not arrive at a complete solution of the phylogenetic relationships. Among these genera, only Melita (sensu lato) includes more than 80 species, which are possibly divided into subgroups; however, their relationships within the genus still remain to be studied. On the other hand, many monotypic genera have been created, based on a few characters. These small taxa seemingly obscure the relationship among the species. In this circumstance, it is rather better to treat most of them together within the genus A1elita for further consideration, and not to make hasty election of a new taxon for the awa-compiex at the present stage. It is instructive that almost all of these genera, except Phreatomelita, have a 2-articulate uropod 3 which is one of the two major diagnoses for separating Abludomelita from Melita by Kara.man (1981); thus, M. awa and M. matilda were
10 MELITA FROM HIGH TIDE POOL 387 placed in the Abludomelita in his paper. I have indicated that both I- and 2-articulate uropods 3 are encountered in Melita (sensu Karaman, 1981) (Yamato, 1987, 1990). Zeidler ( 1989) rightly pointed out that the 2-articu1ate uropods 3 is plesiomorphic. The common possession of a 2-articulate uropod 3 among the awa-complex is just symplesiomorphy. If the awa-complex is really it group of closely related species, it is very interesting that they are reported mostly from more or less brackish water habitats, such as pools, rivers, lakes, springs; in the cases that their habitats were reported to be almost freshwater, the authors suspected the some influence of the sea or the anchialine water. While these kinds of habitat are separated by open sea water, these related species are distributed over the Indo-Pacific. Stock & Vonk (1992) presented a scenario for the evolution of the freshwater species, Melita cognata and M. dulcicola, in different mid-atlantic islands. They presumed that these two species evolved independently and recently from different marine ancestors. This scenario seems to be inapplicable to the case of the awa-complex, because it is difficult to find marine relatives for the awa-complex. Perhaps the species of the awa-complex were derived from a wide-ranging Tethyan group and subsequent radiation over a short distance or recent invasion of less saline habitats might have happened.
