S. pyrsonotus sp. nov. from the Indo-West Pacific region is described and figured. Specimens were collected from the Hawaiian Islands and Mauritius. S. pyrsonotus, is closely related to S. hispidus but is easily distinguished by morphological differences in the rostrum, telson and spinulation of the body as well as by coloration. A key to the 4 spp. [S. pyrsonotus, S. zanzibaricus Bruce 1976, S. tenuirostris De Man 1888 and S. hispidus] from the Indo-West Pacific is included.
