Abstract
    A new species of portunid crab, Charybdis (Charybdis) goaensis sp. nov. is described from Goa, west coast of India. It differs from its closest congener, Charybdis (Charybdis) philippinensis in possessing bluntly triangular median frontal teeth, wide U-shaped notches separating the sub-median and lateral frontal teeth, wide notches separating antero-lateral teeth, and granular tuberosity on cardiac region of carapace. A taxonomic key to 43 species of the sub-genus Charybdis including the newly described species is also provided.
