A new species of freshwater crab of the genus Qianguimon Huang, 2018, Q. rongxianense
sp. nov. is described from Rong County, Yulin City, Guangxi Zhuang
Autonomous region, southern China. This new species resembles its
congeners and some species in the genus Yarepotamon
Dai & Türkay, 1997, but can be distinguished from these by its
combination of the carapace, third maxilliped, male gonopod, female
vulvae characters and size. Molecular data derived from the
mitochondrial 16S rDNA supports the establishment of the new species,
but does not provide further evidence as to its generic placement.
Key words: Qianguimon, Freshwater crab, Guangxi, New species, 16S rDNA.
