Nutting (1919) text p. 182 location: Antigua, Antigua and Barbuda Uca burgersi MSR A strange typo mixing up multiple names. The author refers to figures from Rathbun (1918) and was clearly not attempting to create a new name. While geographically, it could be a reference to Uca leptodactyla, Rathbun (1921) later identifies a few specimens from the same expedition as U. mordax, although we now know that the correct identification for Rathbun's specimens should be U. burgersi.
Crane (1975) text p. 323 citation: Nutting (1919)Uca leptostyla Uca burgersi Computed Refers to original name as a laptus calami.
