We report Palaemon monsdamarum n. sp. (Crustacea, Decapoda, Palaemonidae) from the tripoli of the Messinian (upper Miocene) of Mondaino (Rimini, Emilia-Romagna, Italy). The presence of a new caridean species expands the scarce knowledge on the distribution and environmental range for the genus, usually scarcely reported in the worldwide Cenozoic fossil record. This is the first report of a carideans from the Miocene of Italy.
