Review of the family Platyxanthidae Guinot, 1977 Crustacea, Decapoda, Brachyura, Eriphioidea, with the description of a new genus and a key to genera and species


, : Review of the family Platyxanthidae Guinot, 1977 Crustacea, Decapoda, Brachyura, Eriphioidea, with the description of a new genus and a key to genera and species. Zootaxa 3498 (26 Sept): 1-23

During recent studies of phylogenetic relationships within Eriphioidea (sensu Ng et al. 2008), we recovered molecular evidence that the genus Platyxanthus A. Milne-Edwards, 1863, was not monophyletic. This prompted detailed morphological examination of the group, which confirmed that clear differences in characteristics of the carapace, first male pleopod, antennae, antennules, epistome, abdomen, and thoracic sternum serve to separate the species of Platyxanthus into three distinct groups. Comparison of the type material of Peloeus cokeri (Rathbun, 1930), (formerly Platyxanthus cokeri) to Peloeus armatus Eydoux&Souleyet, 1842, indicated that P. cokeri is a junior synonym of P. armatus and that Gordonoxanthus Stevcic, 2011 (type species Platyxanthus cokeri Rathbun, 1930) is thus a junior synonym of Peloeus. Danielethus n. gen. is described to accommodate Platyxanthus patagonicus A. Milne-Edwards, 1863, and Platyxanthus crenulatus A. Milne-Edwards, 1863. A key to the known genera and species of the family Platyxanthidae Guinot, 1977 is provided.
