A new symbiotic association between a deep-water homolid crab, Hypsophrys inflata Guinot & Richer de Forges, 1981 (Brachyura, Podotremata, Homolidae) and a sea anemone of the genus Isanthus (Anthozoa, Actiniaria, Isanthidae) is described from French Polynesia. The crab carries the anemone on its modified last pairs of legs. It is suggested that this represents a mutualistic association.
