The taxonomy and ecology of the porcellanid crab, Aliaporcellana telestophila, is elaborated upon. Variations in the structure of the carapace and chelipeds are documented and figured. The species, previously thought to be a commensal of Telesto (Clavulariidae), is shown to be actually associated with another octocoral, Solenocaulon (Anthothelidae).
