Abstract The poorly known pilumnid, Vellumnus penicillatus (Gordon, 1930), is redescribed by examining the Hong Kong types. A new species, Vellumnus tki n. sp., is described from Macclesfield Bank, South China Sea, and it is distinguished from its closest congener, Vellumnus minabensis (Sakai, 1969) from Japan, by the setal pattern on the carapace and pereiopods, carapace proportions, structure of the front and anterolateral teeth, armature on the chelipeds and relatively shorter ambulatory legs.
