Abstract: The identity of Cancer armadillus Herbst, 1790, a name not used since it was first established, is clarified. It is shown to be a species of Demania Laurie, 1906 Brachyura, Xanthidae, a genus of poisonous Indo-West Pacific crabs. Herbst's species is regarded as conspecific with Demania bangladeshensis Ng, Huda and Banu, 1987, and the holotype of D. bangladeshensis is here designated as the neotype of Cancer armadillus. Demania indiana Deb, 1987, is also here regarded as a junior synonym of Demania armadillus.
