      – An annotated checklist of the extant brachyuran crabs of the world is presented for the first time. O names are treated including 6, valid species and subspecies (with 1, primary synonyms), 1, genera and subgenera (with primary synonyms), 93 families and 38 superfamilies. Nomenclatural and taxonomic problems are reviewed in detail, and many resolved.   The taxonomy of Daldorfia spinosissima (A. Milne-Edwards, ) and D. triangularis Sakai, , two large and rarely reported parthenopid species, is taxonomy of the two species had been confused until Tan & Ng argued that both were valid availability of fresh species material allowed direct comparisons to be made and the two taxa could, in fact, be separated Cited by: 3.

      The larvae of brachyuran crabs are relatively strong swimmers. Zoeae are capable of sustained speeds on the order of – cm s − 1, and megalopae of some species can swim for extended periods at speeds > cm s − 1 (for reviews see Sulkin, , Queiroga and Blanton, , Epifanio, ).Cited by:   The majoid crab, Macropodia tenuirostris is now reported off the Samandağ coast, Hatay, south-eastern Turkey. One male specimen of Macropodia tenuirostris was found on 31 January on a sandy bottom with a sea grass meadow, Halophila stipulacea (Forskål) Ascherson at a depth of 25 m (GPS coordinates: 36°01′24″N 35°58′33″E) by bottom trawl, with a cod-end mesh size of 22 by: 3.

Peter Ng began compiling names from major regional works, revisions, and taxonomic papers, during the late s. Complementing and adding to this, was the extensive card catalogue of brachyuran species built by Danièle Guinot over the. Crabs have jointed limbs, like a segmented series of hinged cylinders.

Each hinged section only moves in one plane but the combination of a series of hinges that can move in different planes results in limbs that can move in almost every direction.

Brachyuran crabs walk using eight legs. The two taxa of anomuran crabs have different styles of. der crabs, its shape pyriform (pear-shaped), lyrate (broadly trian­ gular), or alate (winged).

In other crabs the carapace tends to be broader than long: in cancroid crabs like Cancer it is broadly oval; in grapsoid crabs like Pachygrapsus it is rectangular or squarish.

In spi­ der crabs the frontal portion of the carapace develops into a promi­. NEW BRACHYURAN CRABS FROM THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS (PLATES ) By JOHN S.
