Ciecie Ete (Marcgrave 1648) image
The other fiddler crab drawing found in Marcrgrave (1648), this was labeled “Ciecie Ete” (he also refers to a very similar species called “Ciecie Panema”). This figure is believed to most likely represent Uca thayeri. This identical image was reprinted in Jonston (1650).
