The crab Plagusia chabrus (L.) was caught in lobster pots by fishermen near St. Paul and New Amsterdam Islands. This is the first record of this species from the southern Indian Ocean. The St. Paul specimens have been compared with the neotype of Plagusia chabrus from South Africa, and with Australian and New Zealand material. A comparison was also made with the syntypes of two species described by H. Milne Edwards in 1837 and in 1853 respectively, viz., Plagusia tomentosa and P. gaimardi. The present record emphasizes the importance of St. Paul and New Amsterdam islands as a biogeographic link between South Africa and Australia.
