Abstract: The parthenopid crab genus Cryptopodia H. Milne Edwards, 1834, is revised. Cryptopodia H. Milne Edwards, 1834, s. str. is restricted for the Indo-West Pacific taxa, and 12 species are recognised. Two new species, Cryptopodia patula and C. echinosa, are described from India. Cryptopodia laevimana Miers, 1879, is shown to be a valid species. Cryptopodia pentagona Flipse, 1930, and C. sinica Chen & Xu, 1991, are regarded as junior synonyms of C. fornicata (Fabricius, 1781), and C. pan Laurie, 1906, respectively. The two American species, C. concava Stimpson, 1871, and C. hassleri Rathbun, 1925, are redescribed and transferred to a new genus, Celatopesia. Celatopesia is distinguished from Cryptopodia in lacking a dorsal triangular depression and a lateroventral concavity for its legs, having the margins of the antennular fossae granulated, the structure of the shape of the third maxilliped, structures of the fingers and palm of the chelipeds, and male telson shape. Keys to the genera Cryptopodia and Celatopesia as well as their respective species are provided.
