REMARKS: The type or types for Hippa dentata are lost (Zimsen, 1964). The types of Cancer personatus are in the ZMB (K. Sakai, 1999).

Although moderately convergent with albuneids, and also adapted to a sand­burrowing lifestyle, corystids have long been recognized as brachyurans, primarily because cause their fifth pereopods are not reduced. This species exhibits so strong a sexual dimorphism that males and females were identified as separate species (personata and dentata ) for many years.
