Abstract: Three new genera and five new species of epialtid majoid crabs are described from deep water in the western Pacific. Two new species of Oxypleurodon Miers, 1886: 0. sanctaeclausi n. sp. and 0. annulaturn n. sp. are described from the Philippines. New specimens of the rare Oxypleurodon carbunculurn (Rathbun, 1906) from the Hawaiian Islands are also recorded. Three new genera are established: Garthinia n. gen. for G disica n. sp. from the Solomon Islands; Guinotinia n. gen. for G cordis n. sp. from New Caledonia and G lehouarnoi n. sp. from Fiji and Tonga; and Laubierinia n. gen. for Sphenocarcinus nodosus Rathbun, 1916, and Rochinia carinata Griffin & Tranter, 1986. © 2009 .
