Abstract
    A new species of hermit crab, Clibanarius harisi, is described from mangrove and estuarine areas in the south coast of Papua, Indonesia. The new species is separated from its congeners by the presence of a strong spine on the ventromesial margin of the merus, and the absence of longitudinal stripes on the second and third pereopods. Clibanarius ambonensis Rahayu and Forest, 1992 and C. antennatus Rahayu and Forest, 1992, are reported for the second time, and a new colour variation of C. longitarsus (De Haan, 1849) is documented.
