[A new species of porcellanid crab, Petrolisthes sanmartini is described. This new species and a second one, currently being described elsewhere, are additional members of the Petrolisthes galathinus complex (Werding, 1983), which is now represented by six species in the southern Caribbean Sea. The new species is distinguished morphologically from all other comparable species by an exceptionally slender shape of the walking legs and the presence of five movable spines on the dactylus of the walking legs, and can be distinguished in the field by its colouration as well. The identity of Petrolisthes galathinus (Bosc) is discussed in relation to the new findings.

Die neue Art ist morphologisch von allen anderen vergleichbaren Arten durch eine außergewöhnlich schlanke Gestalt der Laufbeine und die Anwesenheit fünf beweglichen Stacheln am Dactylus der Laufbeine zu unterscheiden und kann im Feld durch ihre Färbung von verwandten Arten unterschieden werden. Die Identität von Petrolisthes galathinus (Bosc) wird im Zusammenhang mit den neuen Funden diskutiert., A new species of porcellanid crab, Petrolisthes sanmartini is described.
