Synonymy The genera Liocarcinus, Macropipus, Necora and Polybius of recent authors are related, and are probably a monophyletic group, separate from other genera of the Polybiinae. In order to stabilise the nomenclature, all speceis of the four genera are placed in a single genus, Polybius, with four subgenera. Three of these have been named already: Polybius, Necora and Macropipus. The fourth one will be named by Froglia and Manning. [details]

Synonymy A multitude of combinations have been used in the literature consulted; we've followed d'Udekem d'Acoz (1999) in his classification, and considered only his combinations as being valid. However, not all old combinations were explicitly mentioned in his work; since there is little doubt that the same taxa are ment, we placed them in synonymy. [details]
