Abstract

Tirmizi & Kazmi (1988) reported sixteen majid crabs from Pakistan, later two more species were added (Kazmi & Tirmizi, 1995). In the present paper one species, Menaethiops nodulosus (Nobili), is being recorded for the first time from Pakistan and two species, Menaethiops gadaniensis and Pseudomicippe griffini, are being described as new. Pseudomicippe here presents the first record of the genus for this region. A note is also added on live specimens of Stilbognathus curvicornis (Herbst) previously reported from Pakistan from a dry piece of carapace only. Tirmizi & Kazmi (1988) ont signale du Pakistan seize especes de crabes Majidae, auxquelles se sont ajoutees deux especes supplementaires (Kazmi & Tirmizi, 1995).
