    During a recent investigation of the brachyuran fauna of the Egyptian Mediterranean water 41 species belonging to 29 genera were identified. Of these 17 species were new to this area. Of these species Sphaerozius nitidus Stimpson was new to the Mediterranean fauna, and Pilumnus villosissimus (Rafinesque) and Inachus communissimus Rizza may be regarded as new to the eastern Mediterranean. In this paper taxonomic problems are discussed in addition to the ecology, distribution, and economic importance of these species.
