Abstract: The taxonomy of the Geothelphusa levicervix species-group of freshwater crabs (Potamidae), members of which are distributed on five islands in the Ryukyus, Japan, is revised. The present study recognizes five species in the group, three of which are here described as new, and each of which is restricted to its own island. They can be easily distinguished by both carapace and male gonopod characters. On the basis of recent collections, the precise type locality of G. levicervix is here determined to be Tokashiki Island. The five species are diagnosed and a key to the species of the species-group is provided. © 2006 Taylor & Francis.
