A new species of SystellaspisSpence Bate, 1888, Systellaspis liuisp. nov., was discovered in the deep waters of the western Pacific. It is closely allied to S. debilis(A. Milne-Edwards, 1881), but it differs morphologically in the blade of the scaphocerite being equipped with a medial dorsal groove, the spines on pereiopods 1 to 5, the dorsal margin of the third abdominal somite with a carina, the posterior margin of the fifth abdominal somite, and the dorsal margin of the telson armed with at least two rows of spines on each side. A key to the species of Systellaspisis provided.
