AbstractA single, slightly laterally compressed carapace of a dromioid crab from the middle/upper Albian part of the Kazhdumi Formation in the Hamiran area (Hormozgan Province, southwest Iran) is described as a new species, which is tentatively assigned to the brachyuran genus Distefania Checchia-Rispoli, 1917, D.(?) tangishirazensis. This constitutes the first record of the genus from the Middle East. In addition, from the long-defunct Rauen quarry at Kassenberg, near Mülheim-Broich (northwest Germany), a carapace of D. incerta and a rather battered cheliped of the ‘form genus’ Roemerus Bishop, 1983 are recorded from the upper Cenomanian portion of that section, thus adding to previous records of these taxa from Germany.
