Further note on Propagurus miyakei (Baba, 1986) (Decapoda: Anomura: Paguridae), with description of its first zoea
Abstract:An examination of the holotype and three additional specimens enabled us to supplement the original description of Propagurus miyakei (Baba, 1986) and subsequent account of the species by McLaughlin and Lemaitre (2000). Our material extends the geographical range of this species to the north, Boso Peninsula, central Japan. First zoea of P. miyakei is described based on laboratory-hatched material, representing the first description of larvae in the genus Propagurus. Morphology of the first zoea may support the distinction of Propagurus among the pagurid genera.
