A new species of palaemonine shrimp, Brachycarpus crosnieri, from Uvea, Loyalty Islands, New Caledonia, is described and illustrated. The new species is readily distinguished from the two other species of the genus by the elongated carpus of its second pereopod. Both Indo-West Pacific species are now known from New Caledonian waters and the new species is also known from Madang, Papua-New Guinea.
