Ocypodidae of the world (incl. fiddler crabs and ghost crabs)

世界之沙蟹科 (含招潮蟹、沙蟹)

According to the genetic evidence (Shih et al. 2016), the family Ocypodidae is composed of three subfamilies. Because the fiddler crabs are paraphyletic, with two groups are closely related with Ocypode, all subgenera of Uca are here recognized as full genera. Detailed evidence and other information have shown in Shih et al. (2016). Currently the species number of fiddler crabs is 107 (25 Aug 2021).

[The highlighted taxa belong to "fiddler crabs"]
