Coastal hermit crabs (Decapoda: Anomura) from Kenya, with a review and key to East African species
Bulletin of Marine Science
46(3): 578-589
Publication
A collection of hermit crabs from supralittoral, intertidal and shallow sublittoral areas of the Kenya coast between latitudes 3o 50'S and 4o 30'S, revealed the occurrence of 24 species belonging to the genera Coenobita, Diogenes, Dardanus, Clibanarius, Trizopagurus and Paguristes. One of the Calcinus species is undescribed, three of the other species constitute new records for the East African mainland, and all but one are strictly new records for Kenya whose hermit crab fauna has received no attention in the literature. The species are discussed in terms of habitat and their occurrence at the five main collecting sites; the occurrence and distribution of 52 coastal hermit crab species from the whole of East Africa and adjacent islands is also reviewed, and a key for identifying the mainland species is presented.
