Using observations made with the XMM-Newton Observatory, we report the probable X-ray detection of the high-magnetic-field radio pulsar PSR J1734-3333. This pulsar has an inferred surface dipole magnetic field of B = 5.2e13 G, just below that of one anomalous X-ray pulsar AXP. We find that the pulsar has an absorbed 0.5-2.0 keV flux of 5-15e-15 erg-s-cm^2 and that its X-ray luminosity L X is well below its spin down luminosity E dot, with L X 0.1E dot. No pulsations were detected in these data although our derived upper limit is unconstraining. Like most of the other high-B pulsars, PSR J1734-3333 is X-ray faint with no sign of magnetar activity. We collect and tabulate the properties of this and all other known high-B radio pulsars with measured X-ray luminosities or luminosity upper limits and plot L X versus B for them all.
