A new species of spider crab, Hyastenus baru n. sp., was collected from deep water off the eastern Indonesian island Kei-Besar by the French-Indonesian KARUBAR expedition in 1991. The new species is similar to several other members of the genus, but differs in spination of the carapace and ambulatory pereopods.
