ON THE IDENTITY OF THE INDO-WEST PACIFIC LITTORAL XANTHID CRAB, LEPTODIUS EXARATUS (H. MILNE EDWARDS, 1834) (CRUSTACEA: DECAPODA: BRACHYURA: XANTHIDAE)
A close examination of a series of specimens throughout its range shows that L. exaratus should be restricted to the western Indian Ocean, and populations from the eastern Indian and western Pacifi c oceans should be referred to Leptodius affi nis (De Haan, 1835), a species originally described from Japan.
