- Microlysias xenokeras Synonymy. (Stebbing), 1918: 64, pl. 10; K.H. Barnard 1937: 144; Griffiths 1973b: 293–294, fig. 9; Griffiths 1975: 148–149.
3 specimens, TIO 28, Tulai, Pulau Tioman, 2°54'44"N, 104°6'18"E, coral rubble, Azman, B.A.R., Kee, A.A., 19 October 2003.
Griffiths (1975) re-examined this species after discovering an erroneous identification in his earlier publication (see Griffiths 1973a) was based on Barnard’s (1937) Microlysias indica. Specimens from Durban Bay, described by Stebbing were the same as Griffiths’s Microlysias xenokeras. Microlysias xenokeras is the only species in the genus known thus far, and has only been recorded in from the waters of South Africa and Mozambique. It has quite distinctive characters: 1) antenna 1 short and stout, 2) gnathopod 2 minutely chelate, 3) uropod 3 outer ramus 2-articulate, 4) telson with short robust setae dorsally and apically.
