AbstractThe dromiacean crab species Homolodromia bouvieri , originally described from a small, damaged male from deep waters off the coast of Kenya, is redescribed, based on a male from off the coast of Mozambique, Africa. The specimen is the third known for the species and is significantly larger than the 2 previously known specimens, from off Kenya and Natal. Comparisons are made between H. bouvieri and the other two species in the genus, H. paradoxa and H. robertsi , known from the western Atlantic and eastern pacific, respectively.
