Abstract

A new galatheid crustacean, Munidopsis latiangulata, is described on the basis of a single specimen collected from deep waters off Taiwan. This new species is close to M. orcina McArdle, 1901, but is distinguished by the nearly horizontal rostrum lacking a distinct dorsal, longitudinal ridge and by having a telson composed of ten instead of eight plates. Munidopsis latiangulata is the fifth species of the genus recorded from Taiwan.
