A new species of the genus Turleania McLaughlin, , T. sinensis sp. nov., is described and illustrated. This new species is morphologically similar to T. senticosa, but differs from that species in having nine pairs of quadriserial gills, and in having the ventromesial margin of the ischium of both chelipeds armed with large, prominent spines. This is the tenth species in this genus, and the first record of the genus from the China Sea. An identification key to species of Turleania is provided.
