A deep-water pandalid shrimp, Plesionika williamsi Forest, 1964, is recorded for the first time from waters around Japan and Taiwan at depths of 250-340 m. Although this species has been suggested to be cosmopolitan, it has no previous record from the northern Pacific. The present record substantially extends the known geographical range of this species. The morphological characters and coloration of the northwestern Pacific material are described and illustrated. Brief notes on the taxonomy of Plesionika species known from Japan and Taiwan are also provided. Une crevette pandalidé d'eau profonde, Plesionika williamsi Forest, 1964, a été signalée pour la première fois dans les eaux des environs du Japon et de Taiwan, à des profondeurs de 250-340 m. Il avait été suggéré que cette espèce était cosmopolite, cependant elle n'avait jamais été signalée dans le Pacifique Nord. Ce signalement étend considérablement la zone de distribution connue pour cette espèce. Les caractères morphologiques et la coloration du matériel du Pacifique nord-ouest sont décrits et illustrés. Des notes brèves sur la taxonomie des espèces de Plesionika signalées au Japon et à Taiwan sont aussi données.
