Abstract

A NEW SPECIES OF ALLODARDANUS (DECAPODA, DIOGENIDAE) FROM THE WESTERN ATLANTIC BY PATSY A. MCLAUGHLIN Department of Biological Sciences, Florida International University, Miami, Florida 33199, U.S.A. and ROBERT H.

The genus Allodardanus was described by Haig & Provenzano (1965) for one Pacific and one Atlantic species that were clearly distinct from hermit crabs of the Dardanus type. Allodardanus rugosus Haig & Provenzano, the Pacific species, was described from a single female specimen taken at Cocos Island off the coast of Costa Rica. A water color sketch of the animal drawn at the time of its cap- ture indicated that the basic color of the appendages and ocular peduncles was scarlet with patches of Brazil red.
