Abstract: Collections of littoral caprellids from Marinduque and Pamilacan Islands. Philippines, have been studied. The material contained three species: Metaproto novaehollandiae (Haswell, 1880), Protogeton in flatus Mayer, 1903 and Deutella philippinensis new species, which is described in the present paper. Deutella philippinensis new species is close to D. margaritae Guerra-Garcia, 2002 and Deutella mayeri Stebbing, 1895, but constant differences in the mouthparts, gnathopods, pereopods 3 and 4 and male abdomen revealed that the specimens from Philippines belong to a new species. This is the first record of the genus Deutella for the Western Pacific
