Abstract Two new species and two new records of the family Camptandriidae are reported from mangroves in the southwest coast of Irian Jaya, Indonesia. Paracleistostoma laciniatum, new species, and P. quadratum, new species, differ from congeners in the form of the male first pleopod, which is long and cylindrical in the first species, and short and rounded in the second. Paracleistostoma mcneilli (Ward, 1933) and Baruna trigranulum (Dai and Song, 1986) are recorded for the first time from Indonesian waters.
