Abstract
    Squat lobsters of the family Munidopsidae are reported from deep-waters off the Philippines based on the material collected by the PANGLAO 2005 and AURORA expeditions. The material includes three species of the genus Galacantha A. Milne-Edwards, 1880 and 23 species of Munidopsis Whiteaves, 1874. Four species are described as new to science and nine species are recorded for the first time from the Philippines. Colour notes and illustrations from fresh specimens are provided for all the species. The poorly known species, Munidopsis ceratophthalma Alcock, 1901, is described in detail based on a Philippine specimen to supplement the original account of the species. Re-examination of the specimen previously reported as M. ceratophthalma from Taiwan reveals that it represents a new species, which is hereby described in this report.
