Comment(s) on data
First identified as 'Lissocarcinus sp. nov.' by Poupin. This species correctly determined by N. Evans as L. holothuricola (Streets, 1877) (mail 19/08/2012). This species ressembles L. polybioides (recorded in Marquesas by Crosnier, 2002), but with strong transverse carina, but front is entire, rounded, not with deep median incision.
