Abstract: A new species of potamid freshwater crab Ovitamon Ng & Takeda, 1992, is described from Panay Island, Philippines. Ovitamon agmamba, new species, is the largest known member of the genus, and while its overall appearance is similar to O. tomaculum Ng & Takeda, 1992, also described from Panay, its male first gonopod morphology is closer to that of O. arcanum Ng & Takeda, 1992, from Marinduque Island. The distinguishing characters for the new species are the concave proximal lateral margin of the male telson and the diagnostic structure of the male first gonopod, which is relatively more sinuous, as well as having a more slender terminal segment. © National University of Singapore.
