Titanocarcinus kambuehelensis new species is described from the Paleocene Kambühel Formation of Austria. Titanocarcinus ranges from the Cretaceous through the K/T mass extinction into the Eocene. This species is part of a reef fauna, which is one of several similar Paleocene occurrences in Northern and Central Europe. The new species is relatively small for the genus, and only the dorsal carapace is known.
