Gelasimus minor

Owen (1839)

Gelasimus minor (Owen 1839) image
This drawing is from Owen (1839). He labels it Gelasimus minor. There is a lot of ambiguity about the species represented in this diagram (likely incorrect sampling location, no extent specimen with confusing labeling in records), although a variety of evidence led Crane (1975) to believe it was most likely Uca perplexa.
