F 3.2 mm (UF 20663). Europa Island, 22.3447 °S, 40 ° 3289 °E, 16 m, 24 April 2009: 1 M 1.7 mm (UF 20515). Glorieuses Island, 11.5909 °S, 47.2851 °E, 7–14 m, 4 May 2009: 1 ov. F 2.9 mm (UF 20872).

Coloration. Variable, brownish, greenish of orangish overall. Juncture area between palm and fingers white forming a “X”- marking always present (see also Baba et al. 2009).

Remarks. Galathea tanegashimae  is a widely distributed species. The material examined agrees with the original description and subsequent accounts (Baba et al. 2008, 2009). The presence of hepatic and parahepatic spines is constant in all specimens examined. We have not observed morphological and significant genetic differences among specimens from different localities.

The genetic divergences with other species are always higher than 15.8 % ( COI) and 11.2 % (16 S rRNA) ( Tab. 2).

Distribution. Previously recorded from Japan (southern Kyushu), Taiwan, South China Sea, eastern Indian Ocean, Lord Howe Rise; 5– 82 m. Present material includes Japan (Okinawa), Philippines, South China Sea (Macclesfield Bank), Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, Australia (Queensland), New Caledonia, Maldives Islands, Seychelles Islands, Mayotte Island, Scattered Islands, Mozambique, Madagascar; 0–153 m, in sponges, corals ( Pocillopora  spp.), rocks, sand.
