The pontoniine shrimp, Periclimenes adularans Bruce, 2003, previously known only by its type specimens from Australia, is recorded on the basis of some recently collected specimens from the East China Sea coast of Kyushu and the Ryukyu Islands, Japan as well as from the southwestern coast of Taiwan. The species' coloration in life is reported for the first time. Although the host species of P. adularans has not previously been recorded, the present study shows that this shrimp is associated with sea anemones, viz., Cerianthus filiformis Carlgren, 1922 and Megalactis hemprichii Ehrenberg, 1834. Supplementary morphological information on P. adularans is also given. La crevette Pontoniinae, Periclimenes adularans Bruce, 2003, connue auparavant seulement par les spécimens types d'Australie, a été identifiée chez des spécimens récemment collectés de la côte de Kyushu, en mer de Chine orientale et des îles Ryukyu, Japon, ainsi que de la côte sud-occidentale de Taiwan. La coloration de l'espèce vivante est donnée pour la première fois. Bien que l'espècehôte de P. adularans n'ait pas été nommée auparavant, la présente étude montre que cette crevette est associée aux anémones de mer, Cerianthus filiformis Carlgren, 1922 et Megalactis hemprichii Ehrenberg, 1834. Des informations morphologiques supplémentaires sur P. adularans sont aussi données.
