On the taxonomic status of Trapezia rufopunctata (Herbst) and Trapezia flavopunctata Eydoux Souleyet (Decapoda, Brachyura)
- Trapezia tigrina, first described by Eydoux & Souleyet, 1842, from Hawaii, has since been reported, mistakenly, as a synonym of a number of allied species. This misidentification stemmed from an original description lacking in some critical taxonomic features and misplacement of the type. Thus, re-description was deemed necessary to permit accurate identification of this taxon in future studies. The various synonymies are discussed.
