Small shrimps collected from a mangrove creek in Darwin Harbor, Northern Territory, Australia, belong to a new species of alpheid shrimp, Potamalpheops hanleyi, which is described and illustrated. The genus Potamalpheops, not previously recorded from the Australian continent, is known from four species in West Africa, in brackish and fresh water, and a single species occurring in a cave in Mexico. The disjunct distribution on three continents suggests an ancient origin for the genus and an original Tethyan distribution.
