... reported at a depth of 200 m in Flying Fish Cove ( Pettifer & Polak, 1979 ). The new species was found amongst roots in an anchialine pool in a small, unnamed cave CI-54, situated in the North East Point of Christmas Island ( Fig. 1 ). The cave is probably connected to two adjacent anchialine caves...
