A new genus and species of pontoniine shrimp, Blepharocaris panglao, has been found in Panglao Island in the Philippines. The new genus is unique in the Pontoniinae on account of the orbital rim being laminar and distinctly separated from the leaf-like inferior orbital angle. The relationship of this new genus with other similar pontoniines is discussed.
