Abstract: The spiny crab genus Hypothalassia Gistel, 1848 (Eriphiidae) previously regarded as monotypic, is revised and two species are now recognised. The type species, Hypothalassia armata (de Haan, 1835), is redescribed and its distribution restricted to the Pacific. A new species, Hypothalassia acerba, is described from Western and South Australia, being distinguished from the type species by live colours, carapace features, ambulatory leg proportions and structure of the gonopods.
