A new porcellanid crab, Petrolisthes polychaetus n. sp., is described based on material collected from Hainan Island, China. The new species appears closest to P. miyakei Kropp, 1984 and P. trilobatus Osawa, 1996, but is distinguishable by the presence of numerous simple setae, scattered on the dorsal surface of the carapace.
