Grapsoid crabs are best known from the marine intertidal and supratidal. However, some species also inhabit shallow subtidal and freshwater habitats. In the tropics and subtropics, their distribution even includes mountain streams and tree tops. At present, the Grapsoidea consists of the families Grapsidae, Gecarcinidae, and Mictyridae, the first being subdivided into four subfamilies (Grapsinae, Plagusiinae, Sesarminae, and Varuninae). To help resolve phylogenetic relationships among these… CONTINUE READING
