A new species of Matthesonema is described and illustrated, living in the shell of Coenobita (Decapoda). It is characterized by a club shaped tail end bearing the posterior genital papillae in the male and a vestigial postcloacal bursa. It becomes type species of the new subgenus Caudpilla. The diagnosis of Matthesonema is emended. The character pattern of its stem species is reconstructed, and the phylogenetic value of special features of the two known species is discussed. The absence of a glottoid apparatus in M. eremitum n. sp. is probably secondary.
