Notes/Comments

This name, which derives from a museum label, only appears in print (Kingsley, 1880) as a synonym of Uca stenodactylus (H. Milne Edwards & Lucas, 1843). Kingsley mixed a bunch of species together under the name stenodactylus and as the specimen is no longer extant, it's actual meaning is unknown.
