The mainland of Sulawesi is well known for its high diversity of freshwater shrimps. However, many small islands surrounding Sulawesi have been neglected and have not been unexplored. Here, we report on the freshwater shrimps of the Banggai Archipelago, eastern Sulawesi, based on field collections between 2017 and 2019 on four islands, Peleng, Labobo, Bangkurung, and Banggai. Eleven species were found: Caridina brevidactyla J. Roux, 1920, Caridina brevicarpalis De Man, 1892, Caridina gracilipes De Man, 1892, Caridina gracilirostris De Man, 1892, Caridina serratirostris De Man, 1892, Caridina typus H. Milne Edwards, 1837, Caridina weberi De Man, 1892, Macrobrachium australe (Guérin-Méneville, 1838), Macrobrachium equidens (Dana, 1852), Macrobrachium lar (Fabricius, 1798), and Macrobrachium latidactylus (Thallwitz, 1891). One species, C. brevidactyla, is a newly recorded from Sulawesi. Knowledge of the diversity of the freshwater shrimp fauna can contribute to the conservation of species and their habitats.
