Comment: Pagurus brevidactylus is a complex of species with several cryptic species confused under this name (cf. Lemaitre & Tavares, 2015: 492).

Comment(s) on data
Pagurus brevidactylus is a complex of species, cf. Lemaitre & Tavares (2015, Zootaxa: 492) - Currently, this abundant species is considered to exhibit significant morphological variations (Lemaitre et al. 1982), including various color patterns that deviate from the documented coloration provided by Provenzano (1959) and McLaughlin (1975), and conceivably reflect cryptic species confused under this name (D.L. Felder, pers. com.). Ongoing molecular and morphological evaluations of populations of P. brevidactylus from throughout its presumed distributional range, might assist in reaching a precise definition of the boundaries and range of this taxon (Lemaitre et al., in prep.).
