The identities of two closely related Indo-West Pacific species of ghost crabs, Ocypode sinensis Dai, Song & Yang, 1985, and O. cordimanus Latreille, 1818, are clarified. These two species are different not only in various external characters, but also in the structure of their gastric mills. The distribution of O. sinensis is now extended to include India, Peninsular Malaysia, Taiwan, Japan, and the Philippines.
