Type material. HOLOTYPE. Mexico: Tabasco, 18°31′40.25″N– 93°19′43.95″W, 05/XI/2014, col. Ku, M.A.M., 1♂ ( MZUSP 39351 View Materials ) GoogleMaps   . PARATYPES. Mexico: Tabasco, 18°31′40.25″N– 93°19′43.95″W, 05/XI/2014, col. Ku, M.A.M., 5♂, 3♀ ( CCDB 5461 View Materials ) GoogleMaps   .

Diagnosis. Petasma: In dorsal view, the proximal region occupies 3/4 of the distolateral projection length, posterior margins slightly rounded. The distal region extends for 1/4 of the distolateral projection length. The opening is wide and rounded, with a convex row of teeth. In ventral view, the row of teeth of the distal region of the posterior margin invades the proximal region and becomes sparser until it reaches its wider part. In this species the carina in the ventral surface of the proximal region is absent. The appendix masculina is subcircular but less rounded than in X. kroyeri   and has no prominent apex, but its posterior margin is covered with spines. The rounded projection is the widest of all species. In ventral view there are several rows of spines which cover the central concave surface completely.

Etymology. The new species name is in honor of our colleague Dr. Raymond Bauer, a recognized carcinologist who has devoted his career to the study of the biology of shrimps, especially from Gulf of Mexico, the type locality of the new species herein described.

Type locality. Tabasco, Mexico   .

Remarks. A full description and figures of X. baueri   and list of additional non-type material examined is given by Carvalho-Batista et al. (2019, 2020).
