The unusual xanthid reef crab, Polydectus cupulifer (Latreille, 1812), is characterized by possessing a very thick covering of setae all over its external surfaces and its habit of carrying a large sea anemone on each of its chelae. It is here recorded for the first time from Taiwan as well as from the Chinese seas in general. Le crabe Xanthidae inhabituel, Polydectus cupulifer (Latreille, 1812), est caractérisé par la présence d'une couverture très épaisse de soies sur toutes ses surfaces externes et son habitude de porter une grande anémone de mer sur chacune de ses pinces. Il est ici signalé pour la première fois de Taiwan aussi bien que des mers de Chine en général.
