The species is characterized by a prominently convex dorsal carapace surface, regions that are weakly defined, four serrated anterolateral teeth, and a gently serrated frontal margin with a distinct median notch. It is morphologically close to Neoactumnus convexus Sakai, 1965, and N. unispina Garth & Kim, 1983, both from the western Pacific, but is easily distinguishable by possessing a distinct median notch in the frontal margin. © 2011 BRILL.||Source Title:||Crustaceana||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/101543||ISSN:||0011216X||DOI:||10.1163/156854011X605800|
