A biodiversity workshop under the title “International Workshop on the Crustacea of the Andaman Sea” was held at Phuket Marine Biological Center (PMBC), Phuket, Thailand, from 29 November to 20 December 1998 in the framework of the Thai-Danish BIOSHELF programme, running from 1996 to 2000. Material of the decapod families Callianassidae Dana, 1852, Upogebiidae Borradaile, 1903, and Axiidae Huxley, 1879, collected in 1996 and 1998, has been made available for study. As a sequel to the reports on the callianassid collection published in 2002 (Phuket Marine Biological Center Special Publication, 23(2): 461-532) and the upogebiid material published in 2015 (Crustaceana, 88(5): 577-609), the collection of Axiidae is treated in the present paper, with as a result the description of one new species of the genus ColemanaxiusSakai, 2011, and one new species of the genus BruceaxiusSakai, 2011.
