|Abstract:||American carcinologist Sidney Irving Smith (1843-1926) established names of one family, seven genera and 50 species of brachyuran crustaceans in 11 publications between 1869 and 1885. The precise dates of these publications as determined from various sources are given, with particular emphasis on the relative precedence of four that appeared in 1869. A complete list of the brachyuran names proposed by Smith, and their current identities, is also given. Xantho stimpsonii Smith, 1869, a previously overlooked replacement name for Xantho denticulatus Stimpson, 1860 (non White, 1848), is an objective synonym of Williamstimpsonia stimpsoni (A. Milne-Edwards, 1873), and the precedence of the two names is reversed to maintain prevailing usage of the latter. The same action is also taken for Xantho multidentatus Lockington, 1877, a subjective synonym of Williamstimpsonia stimpsoni (A. Milne-Edwards, 1879). The authorship of the following names previously attributed to attributed to Smith in a publication by Verrill (1869) should be attributed only to the latter author: Hepatella amica (Aethridae), Hypoconcha panamensis (Dromiidae) and Pinnotheres margarita (Pinnotheridae). Authorship of the name Cardiosoma, an unjustified emendation of Cardisoma (Gecarcinidae), is conventionally attributed to Smith (1869) but it was actually first used by Agassiz (1846). Cardisoma is attributed to Latreille, in Latreille, Le Peletier, Serville & Guérin, 1828. Copyright © 2012 · Magnolia Press.|
