Although Pagurus Fabricius, 1775 is the most species-rich genus in the hermit crab family Paguridae, only two species of the genus, P. hirtimanus (Miers, 1880) and P. spinulentus (Henderson, 1888), were heretofore known from the Philippines. In this paper, 10 species of the genus, including eight firstly recorded from the Philippines, are reported from the Bohol Sea, based on a collection made during the PANGLAO 2004 Marine Biodiversity Project: P. conformis De Haan, 1849, P. confusus Komai & Yu, 1999, P. fungiformis Komai & Rahayu, 2004, P. hirtimanus, P. kaiensis McLaughlin, 1997, P. kulkarnii Sankolli, 1962, P. moluccensis Haig & Ball, 1988, P. pergranulatus (Henderson, 1896), P. spinulentus, and P. truncatispinosus, new species. Pagurus truncatispinosus, new species, is compared with P. carpoforaminatus (Alcock, 1905), P. cavicarpus Paul’son, 1875, P. conformis, P. spinossior Komai, Reshmi & Biju Kumar, 2013, and P. spinulentus. Detailed descriptions and illustrations are provided for P. pergranulatus and P. spinulentus because no modern descriptions are available for these two species so far.
