  • A new freshwater potamid crab species, Johora gua, is described from Pulau Tioman, an island off the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. It differs from most of its congeners by the relatively longer and slenderer ambulatory legs as well as various other characters in the carapace and male first pleopod. This is the fifth species of Johora Bott to be described from Pulau Tioman, and the first cavernicolous crab to be reported from Peninsular Malaysia.
