Abstract
    The collections of the deep water calappid crab genus Mursia at the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, assembled between 1971 and 1991 off Madagascar, the Philippines and New Caledonia, have been studied, in addition to material sought from other collections. Fifteen species have been identified, of which four are new: M. africana, M. danigoi, M.flamma and M. musorstomia. The allied genus Platymera, formerly submerged within Mursia, is reinstated as a distinct genus. All taxa are described, photographed and illustrated, and a key to their identification is provided.
