Abstract

A new species of soldier crab (genus Mictyris Latreille, 1806) is described from the Andaman Sea coast of Thailand. Mictyristhailandensis sp. nov. differs morphologically from its described congeners by its pale plain colouring, the differentlyshaped apex of the male first gonopod, and by chela features. It also has significant genetic divergence (cytochrome oxidaseI ≥ 11.95%) from other described species
