Species Typhlocarcinops arcuatus (Miers, 1884)


Known only from type locality, although records of "T. decrescens" in Tesch (1918) from Talaut Island in the Moluccas and Roma Island north of Timor should probably be referred to T. arcuata. Specimen from New Guinea described in Miers (1886) is a misidentification (see Ng & Rahayu, 2020).
