[A new species of the alpheid shrimp genus Salmoneus Holthuis, 1955, S. brucei sp. nov., is described and illustrated from Iriomote Island, southern Ryukyu Islands, Japan. The type series was obtained by yabby pump from burrows of the callianassid ghost shrimp, Lepidophthalmus tridentatus (Von Martens, 1868). The new species is unique within the genus in the lack of orbital teeth of the carapace, but the presence of numerous setae on the fingers of the chelipeds and the enlarged minor cheliped link it to S. seticheles Anker, 2003, known from the Northern Territory, Australia. Eine neue Art der alpheiden Gattung Salmoneus Holthuis, 1955, S. brucei sp. nov, wird von der Insel Iriomote, südliche Ryukyu Inseln, Japan, beschrieben und illustriert. Die Typenserie wurde mit einer Saugpumpe aus Bauten des Maulwurfskrebses Lepidophthalmus tridentatus (Von Martens, 1868) erbeutet. Die neue Art ist einzigartig innerhalb der Gattung wegen des Fehlens orbitaler Zähne am Carapax. Das Vorhandensein zahlreicher Borsten auf den Fingern beider Scheren und die vergrößerte kleine Schere stellen sie in die Nähe von S. seticheles Anker, 2003 aus dem Northern Territory Australiens., A new species of the alpheid shrimp genus Salmoneus Holthuis, 1955, S. brucei sp. nov., is described and illustrated from Iriomote Island, southern Ryukyu Islands, Japan.
