Two new species of Gourretia from South China Sea are described and illustrated. Gourretia laevidactyla n. sp. is closely allied to G. biffari found from northwest of Barcelona, Venezuela but differs markedly in having a cardiac prominence present and telson appearing truncate on the posterior margin. Gourretia sinica n. sp. appears to be closely related to the West Atlantic species G. laresi known from Venezuela but differs in the rostrum having a narrower acute spine. It is the first record of this genus in China seas.
