A new species of semiterrestrial gecarcinucid freshwater crab, Thelphusula dicerophilus sp. nov. is described from mud wallows used by the Sumatran Rhinoceros, Dicerorhinus sumatrensis in eastern Sabah, Borneo. The species is closest to Thelphusula granosa Holthuis, 1979 from Gunong Mulu in Sarawak but can easily be distinguished by differences in their carapace sculpture, frontal margin, male first and second pleopod structures.
