This web-site deals with Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura and crab-like Anomura. Introduction  The crab fauna of Russia is not very rich,  compared with tropical countries - just  76  species. Nevertheless it seems to me  interesting to show full list of species in this  web site. Almost all of the species are  illustrated. In addition to the pictures there  ara some data on distribution, habitat and  size of the species. The information and the  illustrations were taken from different  sources. In each case I placed the authorship  and source under the image or after the text.    Seas of Russia Anomura Porcellanidae Pachycheles stevensii Stimpson, 1858 Far East / North Pacific Pisidia longimana (Risso, 1815) = Porcellana longimana Black Sea Hapalogastridae Oedignathus inermis (Stimpson, 1860) = Dermaturus inermis Far East / North Pacific Dermaturus mandtii Brandt, 1850 Far East / North Pacific Hapalogaster dentata (De Haan, 1849) Far East / North Pacific Hapalogaster grebnitzkii Schalfeew, 1892 Far East / North Pacific Lithodidae Lithodes aequispinus Benedict, 1895 Far East / North Pacific Lithodes couesi Benedict, 1895 Far East / North Pacific Lithodes maja (Linnaeus, 1758) = Lithodes arctica Latreille, 1806 Arctic Ocean Paralithodes brevipes (A.

There are a little known publications of  russian authers there. In some cases I translated the titles to English. Information on distribution  and habitat from russian sources also translated from Russian by myself.  The species names in the list was checked with the well-known publication Systema  Brachyurorum (Ng P.K.L. & Guinot D. & Davie P.J.F. 2008), and also with Annotated  checklist of anomuran decapod crustaceans of the world (McLaughlin P.A. & Komai T. &  Lemaitre R. & Rahayu D.L. 2010; Osawa M. & McLaughlin P.A. 2010). The order of families in  this website was taken from these sources too.  Click the map to enlarge:
