A new species of the Diastylidae, Diastylis paratricinta, collected from the coasts of the Yellow Sea and Korea Strait, is described and illustrated. The new species resembles closely to Diastylis tricinta (Zimmer), 1903 from Japan, but is easily distinguished by bearing a horizontal ridge on each postero-lateral surface of the carapace.
