The freshwater shrimp, Atyaephyra rosiana De Brito Capello, 1867 is redescribed on the basis of a population (Algarve, Portugal) close to the topotypical area and a neotype is designated for this species. Its original description by De Brito Capello (1867) is very short and inadequate. A detailed comparison of the neotypes of A. rosiana and Atyaephyra desmarestii (Millet, 1831) revealed the presence of key morphological features that clearly distinguish these species from each other. La crevette d'eau douce, Atyaephyra rosiana De Brito Capello, 1867 est redécrite à partir d'une population présente près de la localité-type (Algarve, Portugal) et un néotype est désigné pour cette espèce. Sa description originale par De Brito Capello (1867) est très courte et insuffisante. Une comparaison détaillée des néotypes de A. rosiana et de Atyaephyra desmarestii (Millet, 1831) a révélé la présence de caractères morphologiques-clés qui distinguent clairement ces espèces l'une de l'autre.
