[Guinotellus melvillensis Serène, 1971, is a rare euxanthine crab (Brachyura, Xanthidae) described from only a single juvenile male specimen devoid of pereiopods, and has never been reported since. Thirteen additional specimens, all adults, have since been discovered, allowing us to make a complete description of its adult morphology. The affinities of this unique, monotypic genus are also discussed.
