Gerstaecker & Ortmann (1901)

Gerstaecker, A., and A.E. Ortmann (1901) Crustacea: Malacostraca. P. 1319 in Die Klassen und Ordnungen der Arthropoden wissenschaftlich dargestellt in Wort und Bild, Volume 5, part 2. Leipzig: C.F. Winter'sche.

Throughout most of this book (up through about page 1100 or so), they refer to the genera Gelasimus and Uca , but only after the more formal classification at the end shift them to Uca and Ucides for the last 200 pages. It makes for some confusion.
