Abstract - A new species of marine palaemonine shrimp from Western Australia is described and illustrated. Leander manningi, a shrimp closely related to L. paulensis (Ortmann, 1897) and L. tenuicornis (Say, 1818), was collected during the course of a survey of Cockburn Sound, Western Australia. The Indo-West Pacific species of the genus Leander Desmarest, 1849 now known are reviewed and a key for their identification is provided.
