|Abstract:||Crabs of the family Dynomenidae from precious coral beds off
Oahu, Hawaiian Islands, are described as Dynomene devanryi sp. nov. The species is
characterized by the velvetlike tomentum without long hairs, some transverse
grooves on the dorsum and obtuse anterolateral teeth of the carapace, and the
stout and nongranulated ambulatory legs. Another species from the same habitat
is Cancer (Platepistoma) macrophthalmus (Rathbun, 1906) of the Cancridae. The
recently erected subgenus Glebocarcinus is reduced to a synonym of Platepistoma,
which hitherto has been known as a genus distinct from Cancer.
