    Ten species of hermit crabs are now reported from the coastal waters of Ras Beirut, Lebanon and, except for Diogenes pugilator (P. Roux, 1829), all are substantiated by preserved specimens. Calcinus ornatus (P. Roux, 1830), Dardanus (= Pagurus) callidus (Risso, 1827), Pagurus cuanensis (Bell, 1846), and Pagurus prideauxi (Leach, 1815) are here reported for the first time from Lebanese waters. Furthermore, the collections verify the occurrence of Paguristes oculatus (Fabricius, 1775), Clibanarius erythropus (Latreille, 1818), and Pagurus anachoretus (Risso, 1827) in Ras Beirut waters but not yet the recently reported Catapaguroides timidus (P. Roux, 1830) and Anapagurus laevis (Bell, 1846).
