The identity of Cancer armadillus Herbst, 1790, a name not used since it was first established, is clarified. It is shown to be a species of Demania Laurie, 1906 (Brachyura, Xanthidae), a genus of poisonous Indo-West Pacific crabs. Herbst's species is regarded as conspecific with Demania bangladeshensis Ng, Huda & Banu, 1987, and the holotype of D. bangladeshensis is here designated as the neotype of Cancer armadillus. Demania indiana Deb, 1987, is also here regarded as a junior synonym of Demania armadillus.
