ABSTRACT Sudanonautes granulatus (Balss, 1929), a fresh-water crab from West Africa, is redescribed from type material and from a large series of other specimens. The species is recognized by a combination of characters of the carapace, chelipeds, and gonopods. It is compared to other species of Sudanonautes Bott, 1955, and to the other genera of fresh-water crabs occurring in West Africa. Sudanonautes granulata shows much intraspecific variation, and it is likely that this has contributed to past difficulties in recognizing this species. The distribution indicates that this species is restricted to the tropical rain forest zone of West Africa, from Cote d'Ivoire to Cameroon, including Bioko Island (Fernando Po).
