Leptograpsus rugulosus H. Milne Edwards, 1853  

( Fig. 6D View FIG )

Leptograpsus rugulosus H. Milne Edwards, 1853: 138   [172].

CURRENT TAXONOMIC STATUS. — Junior subjective synonym of Pachygrapsus transversus ( Gibbes, 1850)   (see Poupin et al. 2005: 44).

LECTOTYPE (present designation). — MNHN-IU-2000-3534 (= MNHN-B3534), ♂ 12.9 × 16.1 mm, Brazil, coll. Gaudichaud. — Original label: “ Leptograpsus rugulosus Lamk.   , Brésil, M. Gaudichaud ”.  

PRESERVATION. — Dry. RP2-3, LP1, RP5 propodus and dactylus missing; LP4-5 carpus, merus and dactylus missing; ventral surface with elder stub.

REMARKS

Rathbun (1918: 245) mentioned that the type was in “ Paris   Museum” but without listing any material. Although Leptograpsus rugulosus   was recognised by Kingsley (1880), it is the junior synonym of Pachygrapsus transversus ( Gibbes, 1850)   according to Poupin et al. (2005: 44).

The MNHN collection contains two samples that could have been seen by H. Milne Edwards in 1853: a complete and dry female specimen MNHN-IU-2000-3535 (= MNHN- B3535), collected from Rio de Janeiro by Peter Claussen (see Appendix), and a specimen MNHN-IU-2000-3534 (= MNHN-B3534) from Brasil collected by Charles Gaudichaud-Beaupré, who was a well-known, extremely active collector at that time in the MNHN (see Appendix). The first entry in the MNHN of South American material collected by Gaudichaud is from 1832, as indicated in the CAA. Henri Milne Edwards was used to mention the localities in accordance with the information provided by the collector, thus the type locality is “ Brésil ” and not “ Rio de Janeiro ”. The specimen MNHN-IU-2000-3534 (= MNHN-B3534) of Gaudichaud is selected as lectotype.
