|Abstract:||A species of the hermit crab genus Catapaguroides recently discovered
in a sand-dwelling Halimeda community on the island of Maui, Hawaiian
Islands, prompted a reexamination of the holotype of Catapaguroides setosus
(Edmondson, 1951), described from off the south coast of O'ahu. The latter
species, currently considered a junior subjective synonym of Catapaguroides fragilis
(Melin), is herein adjudged neither synonymous with C. fragilis nor conspecific
with the second Hawaiian species. Catapaguroides setosus is reinstated
with full specific rank, rediagnosed, and illustrated. The second species, Catapaguroides
hooveri McLaughlin & Pittman, n. sp., is described and illustrated.
