The deep-water swimming crabs of the genus Benthochascon (Decapoda: Brachyura: Portunidae), with description of a new genus for the American B. Schmitti. Journal of Crustacean Biology 20 (2 SPEC. ISS.) : 310-324. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||The taxonomy of the deep-water portunid genus Benthochascon Alcock and Anderson, 1899, is reappraised. Benthochascon is now restricted for its type species from the Indo-West Pacific, Benthochascon hemingi Alcock and Anderson, 1899. Benthochascon schmitti Rathbun, 1931, from the Gulf of Mexico, is referred to a new genus, Raymanninus, which differs from Benthochascon s. str. in the form of the anterolateral margin, first and third maxillipeds, chela, and structure of the fourth male thoracic sternite.||Source Title:||Journal of Crustacean Biology||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/101893||ISSN:||02780372|
