The varunid crab Cyclograpsus pumilio Hangai and Fukui, 2009 is mainly distributed in central-western Honshu, Shikoku and northern Kyushu in Japan. Three males and 9 females of C. pumilio were collected from the Boso Peninsula of Chiba Prefecture in eastern Honshu and the Satsuma Peninsula of Kagoshima Prefecture in southern Kyushu, Japan. In the both sites, C. pumilio were found under gravels deposited in the upper intertidal zone. This is the first record of C. pumilio from the both prefectures, representing its easternmost and southernmost records.
