Abstract: A new species of dorippid crab of the genus Neodorippe Serène & Romimohtarto, is described from Irian Jaya in Indonesia. The genus was previously monotypic. The new species is distinguished from N. callida (Fabricius) by its more glabrous carapace and appendages, proportionately longer ambulatory legs, and different structure of the male first gonopod. Both species habitually carry leaves on their backs for camouflage.
