Remarks. The combination of the unarmed anterior margins of the third and fourth abdominal somites and the presence of numerous short striae on all thoracic sternites readily distinguish Munida haswelli   from other southern Australian congeners. It is most similar to the sympatric M. chydaea   n. sp. Characters distinguishing M. haswelli   from M. chydaea   are outlined under the account of the latter. The specimens of the present series agree well the redescription of type material by Macpherson (1994), including the presence of 7–9 spines on the anterior margin of the second abdominal somite. One female specimen (13.7 mm, AM E6114) has a serpulid tube attached to its carapace.

Distribution. Central New South Wales, south to Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and the Great Australian Bight, Western Australia; 121– 329 m.
