[The spider crab (Majidae) fauna of Indonesia is relatively well known, and some 131 species from 43 genera have now been reported from there (Griffin & Tranter, 1986; Wagner, 1992; Loh & Ng, 1999). The present note adds two interesting majid species to the known Indonesian fauna, based on the material in the Research and Development Centre for Oceanology in Jakarta, Indonesia. Maja compressipes (Miers, 1879) was previously only known from China, whilst Paranaxia serpulifera (Guérin-Méneville, 1829) had been regarded as an Australian endemic. Additional taxonomic notes are also provided for two rare species, Austrolibinia pincerna Wagner, 1992, and Pseudomicippe indonesica Griffin & Tranter, 1986. Measurements provided are of the carapace width (cw), prerostral length (prl) and rostral length (rl). The terminology used follows that by Griffin & Tranter (1986). Specimens examined are deposited in the Museum Zoologicum Bogoriense (MZB), Cibinong, Indonesia; and Zoological Reference Collection (ZRC) of the Raffles Museum, National University of Singapore., The spider crab (Majidae) fauna of Indonesia is relatively well known, and some 131 species from 43 genera have now been reported from there (Griffin & Tranter, 1986; Wagner, 1992; Loh & Ng, 1999).
