A new reef lobster, Enoplometopus crosnieri n.sp., is described based on a Taiwanese specimen. This new species can be readily distinguished from all others of the genus by having one intermediate and one postcervical teeth on the carapace, as well as a distinctive coloration. E. crosnieri is also known from the Timor Sea and French Polynesia. A key to the genus Enoplometopus is also provided.
