VLIZ: Expedition Reports 
During the French-Indonesian KARUBAR campaign, ten species and a megalopal stage of deep-water hermit crabs of the family Parapaguridae, were collected. Two of the species found in the collection are undescribed, Oncopagurus glebosus sp. nov., and Paragiopagurus insolitus sp. nov., and are characterized by several unusual or unique characters. One previously described species, Oncopagurus orientalis (de Saint Laurent, 1972), was found to be insufficiently defined. These three species are described or diagnosed, and illustrated. Another species, Parapagurus latimanus Henderson, 1888, is reported for the first time from Indonesia. Two megalopal stage specimens of a parapagurid species cannot be assigned with certainty based on current knowledge, to any species; they are also illustrated and discussed. A list of all 15 parapagurid species currently known from Indonesian waters is presented, including references where diagnoses and illustrations can be found.
