A new species of spider crab, Collodes tuerkayi n. sp., is described and illustrated from the Western Atlantic (Puerto Rico and northern Brazil). The new species superficially resembles C. inermis A. Milne-Edwards, 1878, in the general appearance of the body, but is distinguished by the details of the carapace, thoracic sternum and antennal ornamentation and the proportion of the pereopods.
