This dataset is from Müller (1990) on Sphaeromatidae from Réunion Island, southern Indian Ocean, with description of a new species of Paraleptosphaeroma Buss & Iverson, 1981 (Crustacea: Isopoda).
Paraleptosphaeroma indica n. sp. is described as the first member of the genus from the Indian Ocean. It was found together with Paraciliacea mossambica Barnard, 1914 on coral reefs at Réunion Island and is closely related to Paraleptosphaeroma glynni Buss & Iverson, 1981 from Panama Pacific and the island Dominica in the Caribbean.
