ABSTRACT. The stenopodidean shrimp genus Odontozona Holthuis, 1946 is recorded from Taiwan for the first time with a new species O. spiridonovi sp.n. The new species is unique in the genus Odontozona by the propodus of the third pereiopod being swollen; more than twice the width of the carpus, and with the dorsal and ventral margins densely serrated. The new species is most similar to O. stigmatica Saito, Okuno et Anker, 2017 but differs in the armature on the ventral margin of the rostrum, the third maxilliped and the palm of the third pereiopod, as well as its coloration.
KEY WORDS: taxonomy, Stenopodidae, new genus, new record.
