A new species of the genus Lebbeus (Crustacea, Decapoda, Caridea, Hypolytidae) from Indonesia

A new species, Lebbeus laevirostris, is described from one specimen collected in the Makassar Strait, at a depth of 779-798 m. It can be distinguished from all the other Lebbeus by its rostrum smooth on all its length and overreaching the eyes by almost half of its length.
