Two new species of pontoniine shrimp from the reefs around Cartier Island, Western Australia, are described and illustrated. Periclimenaeus ancylodactylus is identifiable from the minor second pereiopod dactyl and P. forcipulatus by the dactyl of the third pereiopod, both with unique features. Two species of this genus are already known from nearby Ashmore Reef and five more from the rest of Western Australia.
