|Issue Date:||31-Aug-2008||Citation:||Mendoza, J.C.E.,Ng, P.K.L. (2008-08-31). New genera and species of euxanthine crabs (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura: Xanthidae) from the Bohol Sea, the Philippines. Raffles Bulletin of Zoology 56 (2) : 385-404. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Two new genera and four new xanthid crab species belonging to the subfamily Euxanthinae Alcock (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura) are described from the Bohol Sea, central Philippines. Rizalthus, new genus, with just one species, R. anconis, new species, can be distinguished from allied genera by characters of the carapace, epistome, chelipeds, male abdomen and male first gonopod. Visayax, new genus, contains two new species, V. osteodictyon and V. estampadori, and can be distinguished from similar genera using a combination of features of the carapace, epistome, thoracic sternum, male abdomen, pereiopods and male first gonopod. A new species of Hepatoporus Serène, H. pumex, is also described. It is distinguished from congeners by the unique morphology of its front, carapace sculpturing, form of the subhepatic cavity and structure of the male first gonopod. © National University of Singapore.||Source Title:||Raffles Bulletin of Zoology||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/101203||ISSN:||02172445|
