Abstract
    Based primarily on samples collected during French expeditions to New Caledonia and nearby regions, two new species of the sand crab family Albuneidae Stimpson, 1858 are described from the tropical Indo-West Pacific Ocean: Albunea holthuisi, from Tanzania, Madagascar, and Indonesia, and Austrolepidopa caledonia, from New Caledonia. Two closely related, and often synonymized, species of Albunea: A. microps Miers, 1878 and A. elioti Benedict, 1904 are found to be distinct. Several important diagnostic morphological features, not previously described in the Albuneidae, are discussed. In addition, we provide diagnoses for three Indo-West Pacific species of mole crabs in the family Hippidae Latreille, 1825, including the very similar Hippa pacifica Dana, 1852 and H. celaeno (de Man, 1896). An annotated list of the 37 species of Hippoidea reported from the Indo-West Pacific region is provided, along with a diagnostic key to these species.
