Abstract
    In order to clarify the systematic status of Munida japonica Stimpson, 1858, which has been mixed with several other species constituting a complex, a neotype of this species from Kagoshima, Japan, is selected and described. Examination of the type materials of M. heteracantha Ortmann, 1892, M. semoni Ortmann, 1894 (previously merged with M. heteracantha) and M. honshuensis Benedict, 1902 (previously considered synonymous with M. japonica), discloses that they are valid species. Comparison of these species with numerous specimens from the Philippines, Indonesia, Japan, and the western Indian Ocean yields 13 new relatives species to be described.
