Abstract: A new cavernicolous crab of the genus Karstarma is described from anchialine caves in Samal and Boracay islands, Philippines. The new species, K. philippinarum, is morphologically most similar to K. ultrapes (Ng, Guinot & Illife, 1994) from the Solomon Islands, but differs in having shorter ambulatory legs and an obtuse external orbital angle. A supraorbital convexity tends to be slightly larger in the new species. This paper increases the number of the species of the genus Karstarma to 15 and records the third species of the genus from the Philippines. © National University of Singapore.
