A Reexamination of Dardanus Venosus (H. Milne Edwards) and D. Imperator (Miers), with a Description of a New Species of Dardanus from the Western Atlantic (Crustacea, Decapoda, Diogenidae)
Abstract:A new species of the hermit crab genus Dardanus is described. It is very closely related to Dardanus venosus, with which it has been confused in previous publications. Evidence for the separation of the two species is based on larval as well as adult morphology. Previous citations of “D. venosus” have been researched to determine the species to which the authors referred, and numerous new records for both species are presented. Other species of Dardanus described from the Atlantic Ocean are considered, especially D. imperator, which is partially redescribed and illustrated.
