AbstractA recent collection of freshwater crabs of the family Potamonautidae from central Angola included two species of Potamonautes MacLeay, 1838, P. anchietae (Brito-Capello, 1871), and P. kensleyi, new species, which are described. In addition, Potamonautes adeleae Bott, 1968, is recognized as a valid species, and the taxonomic status and biogeographic affinities of other species of freshwater crabs that have been reported from Angola are discussed. The addition of P. kensleyi and P. adeleae raises the number of species of freshwater crabs known to occur in Angola to seven.
