Abstract Austinotheres new genus and Raymondia new genus are erected to receive as type species the oyster crab Pinnotheres angelicus Lockington, 1877, which is redescribed, and the knife-clam crab Pinnotheres clavapedatus Glassell, 1935, respectively. Austinotheres can be separated from other Pinnotheridae by the combination of the following characters: walking legs 2 asymmetrical in length, and the third maxilliped having a carpus that is larger than the combined propodus and dactylus. Raymondia differs from other Pinnotheridae in having a clavate propodus of the first and second walking legs of the female and in the large dactylus of the third maxilliped that inserts on the midlength on the ventral margin of this article and extends far beyond the tip of the propodus.
