dc.description.abstractA new species of pea crab, Pinnotheres halingi sp. nov. (Pinnotheridae), found encysted in the right respiratory tree of the sea cucumber, Holothuria scabra (Holothuridea), from Solomon Islands, is described. The reproduction, infestation and pairing behaviour of the crabs were investigated through field observations and experiments. Infestation frequency in 8 monthly samplings of 2530 holothurians was 98.6±2.6% in Kogu Halingi bay and 0% in two nearby sites. Of 403 pea crabs, 91.4% were found in pairs of opposite sex, 7.9% were single females and
