The Mediterranean endemic crab, Inachus parvirostris (Risso, 1816), is herein reported for the second time from Turkey. Until now, there existed only one record of the species from Turkey, i.e., Ateş et al. (2008). Those authors recorded this species based only on an empty carapace from the continental coast of the southern Turkish Aegean Sea. The present study reports a nearly complete specimen of this rare crab species (the dactyli of both second pereiopods and the rigth fifth pereiopod are missing) from the Turkish seas for the first time. This is also the first record of the species from deep waters of the eastern Mediterranean Sea (at depth 350 m depth). The record further extends the known distribution of this species to the central Aegean Sea, in Turkish waters. Le crabe endémique méditerranéen, Inachus parvirostris (Risso, 1816), est ici rapporté pour la seconde fois de Turquie. Jusqu'à présent, sa présence n'avait été signalée qu'une seule fois en Turquie, par Ateş et al. (2008). Ces auteurs l'avait identifié à partir d'une carapace vide collectée sur la côte continentale du sud de la mer Egée turque. La présente étude décrit un spécimen presque complet de cette espèce rare de crabe (les dactyles des deux seconds péréiopodes et le cinquième péréiopode droit sont absents) des mers turques pour la première fois. C'est aussi la première fois que l'on trouve cette espèce dans les eaux profondes de la mer Méditerranée orientale (à 350 m de profondeur). Cette découverte étend la répartition connue de cette espèce à la mer Egée centrale, dans les eaux turques.
