Abstract
    The two known species of Palinurellus are discussed and new locality records provided; the question of the presence or absence of pleopods on the first abdominal somite in the two sexes is considered but no satisfactory solution reached, The onty known living species of Linuparus, L. trigonus (Von Siebold) is now reported for the first time from the Philippines. A lectotype is selected. The genus Puerulus is revised, and a key to the three species provided. Puerulus angulatus ( Bate ), the type of the genus is extensively described and its synonymy is discussed. The two other species, P. sewelli Ramadan and P. velutinus Holthuis are described and compared with P. angulatus. Of all the genera and species treated a complete synonymy is provided.
