[A new species of squat lobster, Chirostylus sandyi, is described from two female specimens collected on a reef flat in Bohol, Philippines, and from the Lembeh Strait, Indonesia. It is differentiated from the other known species of the genus by a ventrally inflated third thoracic sternite and the absence of spines on the carapace other than a pair of epigastric spines. The coloration is similar to that of C. stellarus Osawa, 2007, from which it is distinct in having no white spots on the lateral surface of the P2-4 meri and carpi. Une espèce nouvelle de galathée, Chirostylus sandyi, est décrite à partir de deux femelles récoltées sur un récif plat à Bohol, Philippines et au Détroit de Lembeh, Indonésie. Elle se différencie des autres espèces connues du genre par le troisième sternite abdominal aplati ventralement et l'absence d'épines sur la carapace à part d'une paire d'épines épigastriques. La coloration est analogue à celle de C. stellarus Osawa, 2007 dont elle se distingue cependant par l'absence de taches blanches sur la face latérale du mérus et du carpe des péréiopodes 2-4., A new species of squat lobster, Chirostylus sandyi, is described from two female specimens collected on a reef flat in Bohol, Philippines, and from the Lembeh Strait, Indonesia.
