A new species of deep-sea crab, Chaceon manningi (Brachyura, Geryonidae), is described from depths of 438 to 636 m in the Tung-Sa Islands, South China Sea. The dorsal carapace surface of C. manningi resembles C. granulatus from Japan but in the form of the anterolateral margin and ambulatory dactylus, C. manningi is closer to C. bicolor from New Caledonia, Australia, and New Zealand. Seven species of Chaceon are now known from the Pacific Ocean. Chaceon manningi is the largest member of the genus known so far.
