The Spider Crabs of America1

    Article metrics


    MISS RATHBUN has completed a very beautiful systematic monograph on the American spider crabs. It is a work of enormous labour, for no less than seventy-nine genera and nearly three hundred species are described, with minute details of their distribution and lists of the specimens examined from all localities. The figures are good photographs or clear diagrams and occupy nearly half the book, which is a most important contribution to the study of carcinology, and will be extremely useful to all systematists.
