Abstract: Crabs of the family Parthenopidae (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura) from Taiwan. Zoological Studies 38(2): 196-206. Twelve species and 9 genera of parthenopid crabs are here recorded from Taiwan, of which six are new records, viz. Aethra scruposa (Linnaeus, 1764), Aulacolambrus revibrachiatus (Shen, Dai and Chen, 1982), Aulacolambrus hoplonotus (Adams and White, 1848), Garthambrus stellata (Rathbun, 1906), Heterocrypta transitans Ortmann, 1893 and Rhinolambrus contrarius (Herbst, 1804). Of these, the presence of G. stellata is interesting as the species was previously known from Hawaii and French Polynesia. Taxonomic problems associated with several species are clarified, and the value of the male 1st gonopods as taxonomic characters is discussed.
