A new species of the upogebiid mud shrimp genus AustinogebiaNgoc-Ho, 2001, A. liuin. sp., collected from the Bohai Sea, is described and illustrated. It is closely similar to A. takaoensis(Sakai & Türkay, 1995) and A. spinifrons(Haswell, 1881) in the fixed finger of the male pereopod 1 bearing a large blunt tooth on the outer (or lateral) surface, but differs markedly from the latter two in the rostrum being 1.7 times as long as its basal width, and the lower margin of the antennal peduncle being unarmed, respectively.
