A new crab species from the Oxfordian of Poland (Decapoda: Brachyura: Goniodromitidae)
Abstract:Representatives of Goniodromites are the most common brachyurans in Jurassic localities of southern Poland. Analysis of Goniodromites from four Oxfordian localities of southern Poland yielded three species: G. serratus, G. narinosus and a new species, G. kubai. The differences between these species are based upon features of the rostral region and the augenrest, and also are mirrored in the morphometric analysis. Numerous specimens of G. narinosus enabled us to supplement the original description.
