Two New West Indian Hermit Crabs of the Genus Paguristes (Crustacea: Diogenidae)
Abstract:Paguristes starcki, sp. n. is described from a single male collected at Alligator Reef in the Florida Keys. P. anaryballus, sp.n. is based upon nine specimens from shallow water at Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles. P. starcki is mest similar to P. cadenati among West Indian congeners and P. anaryballus is most similar to P. anomalus. Neither of the new species is yet known from more than one locality, but both can be recognized in the field and should be accessible to collectors in shallow reef habitats.
