|Abstract||A new genus of parthenopid crab, Garthambrus gen. nov., characterised by a broad carapace with strongly raised branchial and gastric regions, distinctive rostrum, sub-cylindrical ambulatory meri and a long distal segment of the second male pleopod, is established for six deep water species from various parts of the Pacific. A new species, Garthambrus posidon spec, nov., is also described from depths of between 480 to 600 m off the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean. It differs from its closest congener, G. poupini (Garth, 1993), in having a proportionately broader carapace, less granulated carapace and chelipedal surfaces, and in the form of the carapace regions.|
