Abstract

Seven of the eleven species of shore crabs of the families Grapsidae and Ocypodidae occurring in Tasmania are considered; synonymies, detailed locality lists and comments on previous work are given; the remaining four species have been recently discussed in detail elsewhere by Campbell and Griffin (1966). The sesarmine Paragrapsus laevis (Dana) is recorded definitely from Tasmania for the first time. The status of this species and of Leptograpsodes octodentatus (H. Milne Edwards) is discussed. The zoogeographical relations of the Tasmanian grapsid and ocypodid fauna are considered.
