Abstract: Peter K. L. Ng (2000) The Indo-Pacific Pilumnidae XIII. On a new species, Pilumnus acanthosoma (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura), from Taiwan and the South China Sea, with notes on P. dofleini Balss, 1933. Zoological Studies 39(4): 301-306. The identity of the endemic Japanese pilumnid crab Pilumnus dofleini Balss, 1933, is clarified, redescribed and figured in detail. A new allied species from southern Taiwan and the South China Sea, P. acanthosoma, is described. P. acanthosoma, however, can easily be distinguished from P. dofleini by numerous carapace, ambulatory leg, male abdominal, and male gonopodal characters.
