Abstract: The binomial name Cancer arenarius has been proposed in five different works for species of Crustacea. The earliest name, Cancer arenarius Toreen, in Osbeck, 1765, is identified with Ocypode ceratophthalmus (Pallas, 1772), with usage of the latter name being maintained by a reversal of precedence. We identify Cancer arenarius Zimmermann, in Cavolini, 1792, with Eriphia verrucosa (Forskål, 1775). Cancer (Mantis) arenarius Herbst, 1793, is a preoccupied and unavailable objective synonym of Lysiosquillina maculata (Fabricius, 1793), and we herein designate the neotype of the latter as the simultaneous neotype of the former to fix the identities of both names. Cancer (Gammarellus) arenarius Herbst, 1793, is identified with Gamarellus homari (Fabricius, 1779). Cancer arenarius Catesby, 1771, has been deemed not an available name by the Zoological Commission, but is identifiable with Ocypode quadrata (Fabricius, 1787). Cancer eques Aubert de la Chesnaye des Bois, 1759, and Ocypoda ippeus Olivier, 1804 (and its incorrect original spelling, Cancer hippeus), are both referred to Ocypode cursor (Linnaeus, 1758), while Ocypoda edwardsi Osorio, 1890, is a subjective junior synonym of Ocypode africana De Man, 1881. The authorship of Cancer erythropus (now Dromia erythropus): Edwards, in Catesby, 1771, is also clarified. Copyright © 2012.
