The palaemonid genus Laomenes is re-established. The type species, Periclimenes (Corniger) ceratophthalmus Borradaile, associated with crinoids, differs from other Periclimenes Costa species at the generic level on the account of the epistome being armed with horns, the posterior rostral carina forming well developed supraorbital eaves, the presence of a supraocular tooth at the edge of the supraocular eaves, the eye with the cornea produced distally, and the mandible with a widened and multidentate incisor process. Three other crinoid associates, P. amboinensis (De Man), P. (Corniger) cornutus Borradaile, and Parapontonia nudirostris Bruce are now placed in the genus Laomenes. The monotypic genus, Parapontonia Bruce is considered to be a junior subjective synonym of Laomenes. A key and a checklist to the species of Laomenes known at present are provided. Le genre de Palaemonidae Laomenes est rétabli. L'espèce-type Periclimenes (Corniger) ceratophthalmus Borradaile associée à des crinoïdes, diffère des autres espèces de Periclimenes Costa au niveau générique par l'épistome pourvu de cornes, la carène rostrale postérieure formant des proéminences supraorbitaires bien développées, la présence d'une dent supra-oculaire sur le bord des proéminences supra oculaires, l'oeil à cornée prolongée distalement, et la mandibule à large processus incisif multidenticulé. Trois autres espèces associées à des crinoïdes, P. amboinensis (De Man), P. (Corniger) cornutus Borradaile, et Parapontonia nudirostris Bruce sont maintenant placées dans le genre Laomenes. Le genre monotypique Parapontonia Bruce est considéré comme un synonyme junior subjectif de Laomenes. Une clé et une liste des espèces de Laomenes connues à ce jour sont fournies.
