A new genus and new species of euryhaline marine macrophthalmid crab, Lutogemma sandybrucei, is described from Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, Australia. Lutogemma can be distinguished from other macrophthalmid genera by its unique mouthparts, apparently modified for suspension feeding; the bulging pterygostome; its narrow sub-cylindrical walking legs with recurved dactyli on the last pair; the male abdomen leaving a gape into the sterno-abdominal cavity laterally at base of sternite 4; and a characteristic male first gonopod. Eine neue Gattung und neue Art euryhaliner, mariner macrophthalmider Krabben, Lutogemma sandybrucei, wird von Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, Australien beschrieben. Lutogemma kann von anderen macrophthalmiden Gattungen durch die Kombination folgender Merkmale unterschieden werden: einzigartige, wahrscheinlich ans Filtrieren angepasste Mundwerkzeuge; aufgewölbtes Pterygostom; schmale subzylindrische Schreitbeine mit zurückgekrümmten Dactyli am letzten Paar; Abdomen des Männchens mit einer zur sterno-abdominalen Höhle führenden Aussparung lateral der Basis des vierten Sterniten; charakteristischer erster Gonopod des Männchens.
