Cancer urania Herbst, 1801, is the type species of the leucosiid genus Coleusia Galil, 2006. Its identity has been a subject of confusion due to various taxonomical and nomenclatural issues. We redescribe the species, discuss its complex history and taxonomy, and a female syntype is designated as the lectotype of the species to clarify any lingering ambiguities concerning the type material of Cancer urania Herbst, 1801. 
A new species of Coleusia Galil, 2006 (Decapoda: Brachyura: Leucosiidae) from southern Asia.
TLDR
A new species of leucosiid crab of the genus Coleusia Galil, 2006, is described from South and Southeast Asia and is distinguished from the superficially similar C. urania in the shape of the apical process of the first male gonopod. Expand
A new species of leucosiid crab (Decapoda: Brachyura: Leucosiidae) from the Arabian Gulf.
TLDR
A new species from the western Arabian Gulf is described, closely related to the congener C. biannulata, and can be distinguished from other species at these genus congeners mainly by the straight upward apical shape of the male first pleopod (G1). Expand
First record of Seulocia pulchra from India with a note on its colour pattern

A collection of crabs (Crustacea, Brachyura) from the southwestern coast of India, with a discussion of the systematic position of Nectopanope Wood-Mason in Wood-Mason & Alcock, 1891 (Euryplacidae)
TLDR
The Indian research vessel FORV Sagar Sampada obtained the first known male of Nectopanoperhodobaphes Wood-Mason in Wood-mason & Alcock, 1891, and its characters show that it is in fact a member of the Euryplacidae Stimpson, 1871. Expand
