[A new species of Tritodynamia Ortmann, 1894 sensu stricto is described from Singapore. The new species is morphologically similar to three Chinese species, namely T. dilatata Yang & Sun, 1996, T. longipropoda Dai, Feng, Song & Cheng, 1980, and T. hainanensis Dai, Feng, Song & Cheng, 1980. The new species is, however, distinguished from these three species by characters of the carapace, ambulatory legs, male abdominal somites, and telson. This record also represents the southernmost record of the genus. Une espèce nouvelle de Tritodynamia Ortmann, 1894 sensu stricto est décrite de Singapour. Elle est morphologiquement très proche des trois espèces chinoises, T. dilatata Yang & Sun, 1996, T. longipropoda Dai, Feng, Song & Cheng, 1980 et T. hainanensis Dai, Feng, Song & Cheng, 1980. La nouvelle espèce se distingue cependant de ces trois dernières par des caractères de la carapace, des pattes ambulatoires, des somites abdominaux du mâle et du telson. Cette découverte représente aussi le signalement le plus méridional du genre., A new species of Tritodynamia Ortmann, 1894 sensu stricto is described from Singapore.
