The galatheoid Paragalathea africana, from the Late Cretaceous (Cenomanian-Turonian) of Gara Sbaa (Kem Kem, Morocco), is revised, based on the holotype and one additional specimen. A new genus, Muelleristhes, is here erected to accommodate this species; it is placed in the family Porcellanidae Haworth, 1825.
