Abstract: A new genus and new species of pilumnid crab is described from marine encrusting communities in Singapore. Leelumnus gen. nov. is morphologically similar to Latopilumnus Türkay & Schuhmacher, 1985, and Aniptumnus Ng, 2002, in the general shape of the carapace, chelipeds, ambulatory legs and morphology of the male thoracic sternum, but can be distinguished by the morphologies of the front and anterolateral margin of the carapace, as well as the unique structure of the male first gonopod. Only the type species, L. radium sp. nov. is currently assigned to the new genus. Copyright © 2011.
