Abstract

Three axiid species and one calocaridid are recorded from Taiwan. The three deepwater species are described as new: Calaxius manningi, having a finely pitted carapace and strongly spinose chelipeds; Calocarides chani, which possesses finely tuberculate first chelipeds; and Ambiaxius foveolatus, which has a shallowly pitted carapace branchiostegite. Neaxius acanthus (A. Milne Edwards) is recorded from the coral reefs of Taiwan.
