Abstract

Specimens of aeglid anomuran freshwater crabs (Anomura: Aeglidae) from Uruguay deposited in Uruguayan and Brazilian scientific collections included a new species of Aegla from the Pampa biome. This discovery is the first new species of this genus to be described from Uruguay since 1942, and raises the number of species of Aegla found in that country to four. The new species is described and illustrated, and a map of all Uruguayan species of this genus is provided.
