Crustacean fauna of Taiwan: crab-like anomurans
(Hippoidea, Lithodoidea and Porcellanidae).
A total of 3,156 anomuran
and brachyuran individuals was collected, comprising 14 decapod species (7 Anomura and 7 Brachyura); 11 species were collected in both regions.
Phylum arthropoda appeared as the second most dominant group with 33 species of brachyuran and anomuran
and brachyurans that inhabit the intertidal zone of the rocky shore and estuarine waters in temperate and tropical regions spawn over a prolonged period or continuously throughout the year (Sastry, 1983).
This structure, by the pore arrangement in two symmetrical groups, is similar to Parafavreina Bronnimann, Caron and Zanineti, which is assumed to be anomuran
excretions (Hantzschel, 1975).
Histochemical investigations on vitellogenesis of an anomuran
crab, Clibanarius clibanarius.
This latter pattern, with high variability in the deepness of the incomplete furrows, has also been described in various alpheid carideans and in the anomuran
Emerita talpoida (Brooks and Herrick, 1891).
Reproductive ecology and size of sexual maturity in the anomuran
crab Aegla parana (Decapoda: Aeglidae).
The first described species of Entonoscidae was Entoniscus porcellanae from an anomuran
crab, Porcellana discovered by Muller (1862) in Brazil.
argentinus, the freshwater crab Dilocarcinus pagei (Stimpson, 1861), and the freshwater anomuran
Aegla uruguayana (Schmitt, 1942) (Collins & Paggi 1998, Collins 1999, Williner & Collins 2002, Williner 2010).
