A New Pagurapseudes (Crustacea: Tanaidacea) from Southern Florida
Abstract:A new species of the shell-inhabiting tanaidacean genus Pagurapseudes is described from Key Largo and Biscayne Bay, Florida. Pagurapseudes largoensis n. sp. is the third species known to bear coarse teeth proximally on the incisor process of the mandibles, a character unique to the genus. Closest affinities are with P. laevis Menzies from the eastern Pacific. A single-jointed, rudimentary, chelipedal exopodite is noted for P. spinipes Whitelegge.
