dc.description.abstractThe gall crab Opecarcinus cathyae van der Meij, 2014 has been reported from various localities in Indonesia and Malaysia. Recent surveys in the Red Sea, Maldives and Japan yielded additional specimens of O. cathyae, considerably expanding the known distribution range of this species to the east and west. The identity of O. cathyae was confirmed based on COI sequence data, revealing identical haplotypes for the Red Sea, Maldivian and Japanese material and three haplotypes in the Indonesian material. Opecarcinus cathyae has one of the widest known recorded distribution ranges for all gall crab species.
dc.description.sponsorshipWe thank Hiroyuki Tachikawa for collecting the Japanese material used in this study. Fieldwork in the Red Sea was supported by the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology under the Biodiversity in the Saudi Arabian Red Sea program (award number CRG-1-BER-002 to MLB). We are grateful to the University of Milano-Bicocca Marine Research and High Education (MaRHE) Centre in Magoodhoo, the Ministry of Fisheries and Agriculture, Republic of Maldives and the community of Maghoodhoo, Faafu Atoll, Simone Montano and Davide Seveso (MaRHE), Tokyo Metropolitan Ogasawara Island Branch Office, and to Teturo Sasaki (Institute of Boninology) for their help and dive support during fieldwork in the Maldives and the Ogasawara Islands. The field work of the first author in the Maldives and Japan was supported by a 2015 grant from the Academy Ecology Fund (KNAW), 2015 and 2016 grants from the TREUB-maatschappij (Society for the Advancement of Research in the Tropics), and by the John Fell Oxford University Press Research Fund.
