Two rare species of xanthid crab (Brachyura: Xanthidae) are reported for the first time in the territorial waters of Pakistan. Odhnea echinus and Paraxanthodes cumatodes were collected from Sonmiani Bay, on the coast of Pakistan. These species are known from only a few specimens and localities globally. The male gonopods are figured for the first time for these two species, and updates on their taxonomy are also provided.
