Two new species of pontoniine hrimps from Moçambique are described and illustrated. The first species, Periclimenes nomadophila, is the third pontoniine species found to be associated with scyphozoans and the first record of association with a pelagic jellyfish (Rhopilema nomadica). Character differences between closely related species are tabulated and a key to the different species in the Periclimenes obscurus group is presented. The second described species, Tuleariocaris sarec, is the fourth species in its genus. All are associated with sea urchins. Tuleariocaris sarec clings tightly head down, to the spines of its host. A key to the species of the genus Tuleariocarisis presented.
