Abstract
    The deep-sea Brachyura Majidae collected during the MUSORSTOM I and II cruises in the Philippines, completed by several other Indo-Pacific collections, are studied here: genera Platymaia, Cyrtomaia, Pleistacantha, Sphenocarcinus and Naxioides. A key is given for the genera Platymaia and Sphenocarcinus. Four new species are described: Platymaia rebierei, from New Hebrida; Sphenocarcinus stuckiae and S. orbiculatus, both from New Caledonia, and S. bipartitus from Philippines.
