|Abstract:||William Sharp MacLeay's (1838) paper was one of the most important for the 19th century, with the author establishing 17 suprageneric taxa, seven new genera and 23 new species from South Africa, described. The status, validity and taxonomy of these taxa are discussed and the extant type specimens are figured in detail for the first time. Of the 23 species described, types are extant for 18 species. Examination of these specimens also leads to some changes to the taxonomy of several species of Eriphia [Eriphiidae], Trapezia (= Grapsillus) [Trapeziidae], and Planes (= Nautilograpsus) [Grapsidae].|
