Grapsidae

Grapsidae is a family of crabs known variously as marsh crabs, shore crabs or talon crabs.[1] It is not confirmed that the family forms a monophyletic group and some taxa may belong in other families.[2] They are found along the shore among rocks, in estuaries, marshes, and in some cases pelagic among drifting seaweeds and flotsam.

Genera[edit source | edit]

A number of taxa, formerly treated as subfamilies of the family Grapsidae are now considered families in their own right, including Varunidae and Plagusiidae.[3] Ten genera remain in the family, two of them known only from fossils:[3]
