Abstract: The taxonomy of the highly poisonous Indo-West Pacific xanthid crab, Lophozozymus pictor (Fabricius, 1798) is treated. Specimens from northeastern and eastern Australia are here recognised as a new species, L. erinnyes. The two species differ not only in colouration but also in the form of the sutures between male abdominal segments 3 to 5, structure of the anterolateral lobes and male first pleopod. Taxonomic notes on L. incisus (H. Milne Edwards, 1834) and L. edwardsi (Odhner, 1925) are also provided.
