Two new species of Kelleria, i.e., Kelleria indonesiana and Kelleria javaensis, and one previously known species, Kelleria pectinata (A. Scott, 1909) are described and illustrated from specimens collected in four areas of Java coastal waters and Lembeh Strait, North Sulawesi (Celebes), Indonesia.

Kelleria indonesiana, collected from Cilacap Bay on the south coast of central Java, can be distinguished from other species of this genus by combination of several characters, i.e., mouthparts, segmentation of antennule and antenna, and shape of the fifth legs.

Kelleria javaensis, which was collected off Surabaya, Java Sea, is distinguished from other species of the genus by having two lobes on the inner margin of the fifth leg, length proportion of prosome and urosome, and a combination of several characters of the mouthparts.

Kelleria pectinata collected from off Tegal, north coast of central Java, and Lembeh Strait, North Sulawesi, was originally described and named from a single female specimen from the Bali Sea as Pseudanthessius pectinatus by A. Scott (1909).

Descriptions, measurements, and figures are given for these species, along with taxonomic remarks and ecological notes. Deux espèces nouvelles de Kelleria, Kelleria indonesiana et Kelleria javaensis, ainsi qu'une espèce déjà connue, Kelleria pectinata (A. Scott, 1909) sont décrites et illustrées à partir de spécimens collectés dans quatre zones des eaux côtières de Java et du détroit de Lembeh, au nord de Sulawesi (Célèbes), Indonésie.

Kelleria indonesiana, collectée dans la baie de Cilacap sur la côte méridionale de la partie centrale de Java, peut être distinguée des autres espèces de ce genre par une combinaison de plusieurs caractères, soit, les pièces buccales, la segmentation de l'antennule et de l'antenne et la forme des cinquièmes pattes.

Kelleria javaensis, qui a été récoltée au large de Surabaya, mer de Java, se distingue des autres espèces du genre par la présence de deux lobes au bord interne de la cinquième patte, les longueurs relatives du prosome et de l'urosome, et une combinaison de plusieurs caractères des pièces buccales.

Kelleria pectinata, collectée au large de Tegal, sur la côte nord de la partie centrale de Java, et dans le détroit de Lembeh, au nord de Sulawesi, avait été décrite et nommée à partir d'un unique spécimen femelle, sous le nom de Pseudanthessius pectinatus par A. Scott (1909).

Les descriptions, les mesures et les figures sont fournies pour ces espèces, ainsi que des remarques taxonomiques et des notes écologiques.
