[Joeropsis sandybrucei sp. nov., is described from shallow-water habitats (intertidal to 3 metres) on the Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, the second record of the genus from Australia and the first from Australian coral reefs. The species is identified by the relatively wide body (less than 3.0 times as long as wide), serration and shape of the pleotelson, quadrate coxal shape, relatively closely spaced pereonites and anteriorly concave pseudorostrum; in life J. sandybrucei is white with a broad dark-brown band across the head. Joeropsis sandybrucei sp. nov. est décrit des eaux peu profondes (jusqu'à 3 mètres) de la Grande Barrière de Corail, au Queensland. C'est le deuxième signalement de ce genre en Australie et le premier concernant les récifs australiens. L'espèce est identifiée par le corps relativement large (moins de 3,0 fois plus long que large), la forme et la dentelure du pléotelson, la forme carrée du coxa, des péreonites plutôt étroitement espacés et le pseudorostre de forme antérieure concave. Vivant, J. sandybrucei est blanc, avec une large bande brun foncé sur la tête., Joeropsis sandybrucei sp. nov., is described from shallow-water habitats (intertidal to 3 metres) on the Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, the second record of the genus from Australia and the first from Australian coral reefs.
