|Abstract:||Cancer is one of the "oldest" names in carcinology, but like many old and familiar things it has fallen into use as a catch-all category, especially by non-taxonomists. Much taxonomic revision has occurred in Brachyura: Cancridae [Cancer] in recent years, and unfortunately, much of it has passed completely under the radar of biologists. A summary of that revisionary work is provided along with a list of currently accepted names for the living species of Cancridae. We offer this contribution in an effort to cut off the use of old, and in many cases invalid, binomina, and to encourage the use of a modern, up-to-date classification of cancrid crabs. © 2012 The Crustacean Society.
