This is the collection of drawings given by Suiken to Siebold in 1826. Most, if not all, of the drawings were reproductions from earlier works, some of which were by other artists. Of the five fiddler crab illustrations in this manuscript, at least four are originally by Suiken (the male Uca lactea may not be).
The Japanese names are from Suiken; Latin names, when given, were added by Siebold.
These were used, in part, by de Haan when describing the Japanese Crustacea.
