Abstract: Several marine expeditions have been conducted in the Philippine Archipelago since the early part of the 19th century, and have documented the rich diversity of crustaceans collected from these islands. In addition, the recently concluded PANGLAO 2004 and 2005 expeditions to the central Philippines, and the AURORA 2007 expedition to the northeastern Philippines have yielded a diverse array of shallow and deep-water marine animals, particularly brachyuran crustaceans. The family Xanthidae is among the best represented of these brachyurans. As part of a continuing effort to fully document the Brachyura of the Philippines, we report here the occurrence of 25 species belonging to the subfamily Euxanthinae (Brachyura: Xanthidae), with two recently described new genera, five recently described new species and six new country records. © National University of Singapore.
