Specimens of the genus Eumunida have been studied from various localities in the Atlantic Ocean. Cornparisons of specimens from northwest and southwest Africa with material of E. picra from the western Atlantic Ocean has revealed two new species: _E. bella _sp. nov. and _E. squamifera_ sp. nov. _E. squamifera_ from the coast of Namibia, South West Africa, is distinguished from the two other atlantic species by a scaley striation of the carapace. The northwest African E. bella and the western Atlantic E. picra, type of the genus, are closely related species, but differ from each other by the number and size of carapace marginal spines, shape of the anterior margin of the third thoracic sternum, and the ridges on the second abdominal segment. Their coloration is also different. One specimen from the Tasman Sea identified by Gordon in 1930 as _E. picra _represents a further new taxon, _E. australis_ sp. nov. It is readily distinguished from the three Atlantic species by the number of carapace anterio-lateral spines and the long acute projections of the third thoracic sternum. Al1 these species belong to the group A, as defined by Gordon (1930).
