  • Two genera of deep water brachyuran crabs, Platypilumnus (Goneplacidae) and Trachycarcinus (Atelecylidae) are recorded from Taiwan for the first time. Platypi­ lumnus soelae Garth, 1987, is previously known only from northern Australia and southern Indonesia. Trachycarcinus elegans Guinot et Sakai, 1970, was previously re­ garded as a Japanese endemic.
