AbstractA note is presented on the crab Macrophthalmus (Macrophthalmus) ceratophorus Sakai, 1969, formerly only known from the holotype male specimen which was collected in Japanese waters. The species is redescribed on the basis of a large sample, collected from the Amirante Islands in the western Indian Ocean. All specimens were associated with the epizoic lepadid cirriped Octolasmis warwickii Gray, 1825, and an encrusting athecate hydroid.
