Abstract

The Indo-West Pacific spider-crab genus Chlorinoides is redefined and a key is given to the 12 included species considered to be of good taxonomic standing. The type species, C. tenuirostris is shown to be congeneric with several species formerly placed in the genus Acanthophrys, which latter genus is now reduced to synonymy with Hyastenus White. The genus Prismatopus Ward is reduced to synonymy with Chlorinoides.
