Biological Results of the University of Miami Deep-Sea Expeditions. 114. On the Identity of Pagurus Brevidactylus (Stimpson) (Decapoda: Paguridae), with the Description of a New Species of Pagurus from the Western Atlantic
A review of the species heretofore known as Pagurus brevidactylus (Stimpson) and Pagurus miamensis Provenzano has shown that the identity of the former species has been misinterpreted. Stimpson's species is identical with P. miamensis, and the species, to which
the name, P. brevidactylus, has been applied, represents a new species. The group to which these species are assigned has been redefined and renamed.
