Abstract

Examination of newly rediscovered types and reexamination of type material of Anomura, Axiidea, and Brachyura in The Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, Paris, resulted in two new genera, Cretacolana and Styracocarcinus. Protocallianassa Beurlen, 1930, and Mesostylus Bronn and Roemer, 1852, were determined to be distinct genera, and the composition of Protocallianassa thus needs to be reevaluated. Four new combinations resulted from the work.
