pskhun #novataxa #Crustacean 2014: #Christmaplax mirabilis • A #NewFamily, Genus and Species of Cavernicolous #Crab (#Crustacea: #Decapoda: #Brachyura: Pseudozioidea) from #ChristmasIsland, #Australia || The new #crab was found in a #subterranean pool located near the #underwater entrance of a #marine #cave on the northwestern coast of the island. Christmaplax mirabilis has cavernicolous adaptations (e.g., reduced eyes, elongated ambulatory legs and pale colour) and superficially resembles anchialine crabs of the genus #Orcovita (#Varunidae). The characters of the female gonopores, male #gonopods 1 and 2, and male abdomens show that it is a member of the Pseudozioidea. However, Christmaplax mirabilis cannot be placed in any of the three recognised pseudozioid families (#Pseudoziidae, Planopilumnidae and Pilumnoididae), requiring the establishment of a new family, Christmaplacidae. || #NewGenus #NewSpecies #Taxonomy #MarineCave #ocean #Biodiversity #Invertebrate
