Abstract: This study is on the Decapoda Brachyura found in the Dardanelles, included in the Turkish Straits system. Samples of Brachyura were collected at different depths (0-40 m) at 5 stations chosen in the Dardanelles, using a set fishing net and scuba divers during 1998-1999. A total of 19 species belonging to the Brachyura was identified, and 12 of these are new records for the Dardanelles. However, Parthenope angulifrons Latreille, 1825 is reported from the Turkish Straits system for the first time.
