Abstract The galatheid genus Raymunida Macpherson and Machordom, 2000, is reported for the first time from Taiwan, and the species collected is also new to science. The new species is most closely related to R. confundens Macpherson and Machordom, 2001, but differs in having a more robust cheliped and walking legs covered with distinct squammae. The coloration of the new species is probably unique in the genus by both the carapace and abdomen being uniform in color. Analysis of the mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I gene sequences also supports the specific status of this Taiwanese form.
