Taxonavigation

Ordo: Decapoda
Familia: Gecarcinidae

Name

Gecarcinus Leach, 1814Wikispecies linkPensoft Profile

  • Gecarcinus Leach, 1814: 430.

Type species

Cancer ruricola Linnaeus, 1758 (original combination).

Diagnosis

Exopod not projecting beyond third maxilliped ischium-merus articulation, without flagellum; palp concealed by third maxilliped merus margin. Mesial segment of first male gonopod distally reduced and terminal segment basally exposed, terminal segment projecting beyond apical setae.

Remarks

Because further evidence challenging Türkay’s (1973)[1] synonymization of Gecarcinus quadratus with Gecarcinus lateralis has not been presented to date, we follow his taxonomy and treat Gecarcinus quadratus, described from the Pacific mainland, as a junior synonym of Gecarcinus lateralis.
