AbstractA new species of freshwater palaemonid prawn, Macrobrachium oxyphilus spec, nov., is described from highly acidic blackwaters in a peat swamp forest in Selangor, Peninsular Malaysia. The species differs from its nearest congener, M. trompii (de Man, 1898), in having proportionately smaller eyes, shorter scaphocerites, a lesser number of ventral rostral teeth, a more inflated carapace, and less pubescent and more spiniferous chelipeds.
