IT’S OUT! SYSTEMA BRACHYURORUM! EVERY CRAB IN THE WORLD IN A BOOK!

The Raffles Bulletin of Zoology
Supplement No. 17
Systema Brachyurorum: Part I.
An Annotated Checklist of Extant Brachyuran Crabs of the World

It is a great privilege to announce that the Systema Brachyurorum has been published by the Raffles Bulletin of Zoology. This 286-page work contains 6,793 valid species and subspecies, 1,271 genera and subgenera, 93 families and 38 superfamilies, making it the most comprehensive to date. And with references as recent as January 2008, it is also the most up-to-date.

This work has taken three of the leading lights of the field (Drs. Peter K. L. Ng, Danièle Guinot and Peter J. F. Davie) the better part of a decade to produce, and we are proud to be part of the team that brought this work to fruition.

A piece of history in the making can be found here.
