Gelasimus Duperreyi

Guérin-Méneville (1829)

Gelasimus Duperreyi (Guérin-Méneville 1829) image
This drawing is from Guérin-Méneville (1829). He labeled it Gelasimus Duperreryi, a species now known as Uca tetragonon. He later used this same image in another work (1829-1844) but labeled it as yet a different species, Gelasimus chlorophthalmus, (the label of which is incorrect; characteristics of the drawing imply it is is U. tetragonon).
