Eastern Pacific Species of Trapezia (Crustacea, Brachyura: Trapeziidae), Sibling Species Symbiotic with Reef Corals
Abstract:Trapezia corallina Gerstaecker, T. digitalis Latreille, T. ferruginea Latreille and T. formosa Smith are trapeziid crabs that live sympatrically on reef corals of the genus Pocillopora in the tropical eastern Pacific. They differ from each other only in color and small morphological characters and thus represent a complex of sibling species.
