Type locality. Unknown (see Schmitt 1935).

Distribution. Bermuda, Florida, Gulf of Mexico, Antilles, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, and Brazil (from Ceará to Santa Catarina. Oceanic islands: Fernando de Noronha ( Nucci & Melo 2015), Rocas Atoll ( Paiva et al. 2007) and Archipelago Trindade and Martin Vaz, present study).

Remarks. Forty-five species are currently attributed to Calcinus   , 35 of which are from the Indo-West Pacific, four from the eastern Pacific, three from the eastern Atlantic, and three from the western Atlantic ( Poupin & Bouchard 2006; Malay et al. 2018). The specimens from TMV are assigned to Calcinus tibicen   on the basis of the smooth upper margin of the right chela, whereas in the other two western Atlantic species, C. verrilli ( Rathbun, 1901)   and C. urabaensis Campos & Lemaitre, 1994   , it is tuberculated or spinous. Additionally, in C. tibicen   the posterior margin of the telson left lobe is provided with a single spine, whereas in C. verrilli   and C. urabaensis   it is armed with several spines.

Calcinus tibicen   and the eastern Atlantic C. talismani A. Milne-Edwards & Bouvier, 1892   , superficially resemble each other in having the upper margin of the right chela smooth, and grooved P3 propodus, but can be easily disguished in that the dorsal margin of the P3 propodus is distinctly angulous in C. tibicen   , whereas in C. talismani   it is rounded (Poupin 2003).

Mandai et al. (2018a) considered the differences of color pattern among northeastern and southeastern Brazilian specimens of C. tibicen   a case of polymorphism and, without further explanation, suggested that it “might be related to the kind of nutrition as well different ecological and evolutionary predation characteristics.” Later on, however, Mandai et al. (2018b), based on two mitochondrial markers, found that northwestern Atlantic specimens differed from northeastern and southeastern Brazilian coast specimens, despite the lack of morphological evidences to support each genetic group.

A number of sibling species in Calcinus   can be split almost exclusively by color pattern (see for instance Poupin & Lemaitre 2003). Live coloration in C. tibicen   can indeed vary dramatically, but color variants are found within the same population ( Fig. 3 View FIGURE 3 ) and in a limited geographical area and, hence, do not match the genetic groups of Mandai et al. (2018b).
