Three genera removed from the synonymy of Pinnotheres Bosc, 1802 (Brachyura: Pinnotheridae)

  title={Three genera removed from the synonymy of Pinnotheres Bosc, 1802 (Brachyura: Pinnotheridae)},
  author={Raymond B. Manning},
— Three genera, Arcotheres Burger, 1895, Holothuriophilus Nauck, 1880, and Zaops Rathbun, 1900, are removed from the synonymy of Pinnotheres Bosc, 1802. Arcotheres contains only its type species from the IndoWest Pacific, A. palaensis (Burger, 1895). Holothuriophilus is represented by two species from the eastern Pacific, its type species H. trapeziformis Nauck, 1880 and H. pacificus (Poeppig, 1836), a senior synonym of if. silvestrii (Nobili, 1901), a species previously assigned to Pinnaxodes…

Taxonomy of Pinnotheres bipunctatus Nicolet, 1849 with a distributional checklist of the Pinnotheridae of Chile and Peru, and a list of the Crustacea described by Hercule Nicolet in the Atlas of the Physical and Political History of Chile

Although males of these species can morphologically be separated, the holotype of P. bipunctatus resembles a juvenile, consequently, a categorical taxonomic distinction between this species and P. chilensis will require a comparative morphological study of the preadult stages of this latter species.

A new species of pinnotherid crab, Durckheimia lochi , is described from the Great Barrier Reef, representing the first Australian record of the genus. The new species differs from its congeners

Partial revision of the genus Fabia Dana, 1851 (Crustacea: Brachyura: Pinnotheridae)

The present partial revision accepts five of the eight species assigned to Fabia Dana, 1851 (type species) and recommends a future study to determine whether the Brazilian species F. emiliai, is a junior synonym of F. byssomiae.

Molecular evidence for non-monophyly of the pinnotheroid crabs (Crustacea : Brachyura : Pinnotheroidea), warranting taxonomic reappraisal

Molecular genetic markers were used to infer a phylogeny for the family Pinnotheridae De Haan, 1833 to reevaluate the phylogeny and systematics at the level of its subfamilies and genera and resolved the relationships within and among some taxa.

West African pinnotherid crabs, subfamily Pinnotherinae (Crustacea, Decapoda, Brachyura)

Fifteen species of Pinnotherinae, nine new, are recognized from localities in West Africa and are assigned to six new genera, based on features of the carapace, third maxilliped, walking legs,

The western Pacific pinnotherid crab, Fabia obtusidentata Dai, Feng, Song and Chen, 1980, which lives in the saucer scallop, Amusium (Pectinidae), is found not to belong to Fabia Dana, and is referred to the new genus Amusiotheres gen. nov.

It is found that most populations of Tumidotheres belonged to a single species, but that specimens from the western Caribbean Sea represented an undescribed congener, herewith described and named.
