A new species of pontoniine shrimp, Periclimenes sandybrucei n. sp., is described and illustrated based on a specimen collected from deep water off northeastern Taiwan. The new species is allied to the "Periclimenes foresti Bruce, 1981" species group but can be readily distinguished from all the known species of this group by bearing three pairs of dorsolateral spines on the telson, and having the propodi of the third to fifth pereiopods unarmed.
