The shrimps of the genus Periclimenes in the Northeastern Atlantic and the Mediterranean present a complex and little known systematic. In the present paper, several problems are solved, a new subspecies is described and a new identification key is proposed. Furthermore the systematic value of live colour patterns in the taxa examined is briefly discussed.
