In the collection of the Haifa Sea Fisheries Research Station, among material trawled in Mersin Bay, S. E. Turkey, two Brachyuran crabs were found which prove to be of great interest. One, Actaea rufopunctata (H. Milne Edwards), has a rather wide distribution in both the Atlantic and the Indo-West Pacific regions, but only very few records from the Mediterranean are known as yet. The other, Ixa monodi, a species of IndoWest Pacific origin, is new to science, while the genus to which it belongs is now reported for the first time from the Mediterranean.
