17 observations of an iNat first - Glyptograpsus impressus

After nerding out this evening, I’ve found 17 observations from the Eastern Pacific that are Glyptograpsus impressus. This species was previously unrepresented on iNat and surprisingly I could find no recent (color) or living pictures of this species on the internet.

Before tonight these unidentified grapsid (sensu lato) crabs on iNat from the Eastern Pacific clustered around Mexico that have been really bothering me. They have toothed Anterolateral margins so I’ve mistaken a few of them for Sesarma. But today I realized that the males have one claw that is larger than the other. And I came upon this paper by Cuesta and Schubart “The first zoeal stage of Glyptograpsus impressus, with comments on the subfamilial arrangement” that mentioned a grapsid genus I wasn’t familiar (Glyptograpsus) as having: “In adult morphology, the pronounced chelar dimorphism of Glyptograpsus is another character which is unique among the grapsid crabs (with the exception of Playtchirograpsus...)” In other words, Glyptograpsus and Playtchirograpsus uniquely are grapsids where males where one claw is bigger than the other

Turns out these two genera make up a family Glyptograpsidae with 3 species:
Glyptograpsus impressus - distributed from Acapulco, Mexico, to Colombia along the Pacific
Glyptograpsus jamaicensis - endemic to Jamaica
Platychirograpsus spectabilis - endemic to Gulf of Mexico (Tabasco–Veracruz, probably introduced into Florida)

Live pictures of these crabs are very scarce on the internet. Here’s a picture of Glyptograpsus impressus, here’s one of Glyptograpsus jamaicensis and we have one observation of Platychirograpsus spectabilis. These crabs are similar and closely related, the most obvious difference being that Platychirograpsus spectabilis males not only have one larger claw but it has an extremely odd, exaggerated shield shape (in contrast the larger claw in Glyptograpsus is normal shaped)

Here’s my ID reasoning based on the description of the family in Glyptograpsidae, a New Brachyuran Family from Central America: Larval and Adult Morphology, and a Molecular Phylogeny of the Grapsoidea:

1 “Cephalothorax subgloboid, greatest width at base of third pereiopods” in other worlds, the carapace is rounded (almost like Grapsus, and unlike the squarer Arasmes and Sesarma) and widest (B) at the 3rd leg (A)

2 “Front undulated and relatively narrow, with deep median groove, two conspicuous frontal lobes, and two smaller posterior lobes.” I’ve pointed out the frontal lobes (A) and the posterior lobes (B) below. And
“Ischium and merus of third maxillipeds very broad (merus wider than long), ischium with two and merus with three longitudinal sulci (Fig. 1)” Note the wide merus with the longitudinal grooves (C).

3 “Anterolateral margin with three pairs of teeth (not counting exorbital angle), fourth pair often present as prominent tubercles.” Note A below. And “Third pair of walking legs longest.” Note B below.

4 “Chelipeds of adult males markedly heterochelous, in females homochelous.” and “Chelae spoon-tipped and, except major male claw, small; fingers short.” ie the claws are the same size and small in females (A) - note carying eggs - and one is bigger than the other in males (B)

5 “Articulation of carpus and palm of male major cheliped distal to proximal end of palm” Note they attach at A which is further (more distal) than the closest (proximal) end of the claw (B). Platychirograpsus’s crazy shield claw is kind of a super exaggerated version of this.

These characters are more or less consistent with those used in The grapsoid crabs of America by Mary J. Rathbun.

These crabs are being described as being like Mitten crabs (Eriocheir) in that "Glyptograpsus spends its adult life in inland freshwater but its adults must migrate downstream to release their larvae into the sea" (from A Global Overview of the Conservation of Freshwater Decapod Crustaceans) and “‘adults limnic’ is composed of those crabs that spend most of their lives in or near freshwater but migrate back to the sea or shed the larvae into the river current, so that larval development takes place in the ocean. This lifestyle is typical of the genera Eriocheir, Glyptograpsus, and Platychirograpsus, some species of Armases, and other IndoPacific sesarmid and varunid genera (discussed in Diesel and Schuh, 1998).” (from Molecular Phylogeny, Taxonomy, and Evolution of Nonmarine Lineages within the American Grapsoid Crabs (Crustacea: Brachyura)). The migration of gravid females downstream to the sea is certainly consistent with these three observations:
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/85169260
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/3131102
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/85290382
Which show large aggregations of gravid females heading to the sea (though I have to admit if they are like Mitten Crabs I would have thought that their migrations would occur under freshwater and not on land as shown in these pictures...).

The size of these crabs as described in Ecological Aspects of the Freshwater Decapod Crustaceans of the Perlas Archipelago, Panama as “3-22m carapace length (male) 8-18mm (females)” is also consistent with 2 of those observations with pictures of the crab in hand for comparison.

Lastly, I went through the Grapsidae (sensu lat) in Checklist of brachyuran crabs (Crustacea: Decapoda) from the eastern tropical Pacific by Michel E. Hendrickx to reassure myself that there wasn’t some other candidate for these crabs:

GRAPSIDAE MCLEAY, 1838

  1. Aratus pisoni (H. MLLNE EDWARDS, 1837)
  2. Armases angustum (SMITH, 1870)
  3. Armases magdalenense

  28. Sesarma rubinofforum ABELE, 1973
  29. Sesarma sulcatum SMITH, 1870
  30. Tetragrapsus jouyi (RATHBUN, 1893)

I had to familiarize myself with Tetragrapsus, Pseudogaetice, and Euchirograpsus (Galapagos only) but after doing so I feel confident that there are no other candidates in the Eastern Pacific other than Glyptograpsus impressus.

I’m pretty sure I’ve ID’d these crabs correctly, but just to double check, I’ve emailed Prof. Dr. Christoph Schubart and John Christy since “The first zoeal stage of Glyptograpsus impressus, with comments on the subfamilial arrangement” describes them collecting adult crabs in Panama so they likely are very familiar with these crabs in life. I’ll follow up here with an update if they get back to me.

Pretty exciting to finally be able to put a name to these crabs. And also kind of shocking that while I can’t find a single color/living photo of Glyptograpsus impressus on the internet, we seem to have 17 observations hidden in plain sight here on iNaturalist!

Also 3 of these 17 records are from Costa Rica and Ecuador where I don't think the crab is known at least from the literature mentioned here and GBIF.

Stake baiting for Hippa sand crabs in Hawaii

Where I'm from in Northern California, its often hard to scoop a handful of sand in the wave wash zone on a beach without catching one or more Emerita sand crabs buried in the sand. I've been eager to find the tropical counterparts in the genus Hippa for some time. Hippa are described as having an identical niche (e.g. under the sand in the wave wash zone), but their feeding is different. While Emerita live in nutrient rich waters like the California coast with its nutrient rich upwelling and use their long antennae to filter feed, Hippa live in nutrient poor coral reef ecosystems and are scavengers on washed up jellyfish and other forms of meat.

I've spent some time during 3 visits to Hawaii over the last 6 years looking for these to no avail. Here's a thread with some advice from @sea-kangaroo and others. I've honestly spent tens of hours digging for these (thinly veiled as sand castle making - 'daddy I thought we were building a tower not a trench, and should we build further from the water?') with no luck. In that respect they seem very different from Emerita.

I found this paper form 1977 by Wenner which describes using a technique called 'stake baiting' to catch them: "In setting the bait, I pierced three 1 cm3 pieces of bait with no. 2 knitting needles, slid the bait to a location 5 em from the needle top, and then forced these needles into the sand until the meat was flush with the sand surface. At the mean wave wash mark (wet line), the water covered the bait approximately one-half of the time. A 10-m distance separated the three baited stakes. After 5 minutes I scooped up the sand around each needle and sieved it, thereby obtaining the animals that had come to the bait. Each needle was replaced in the sand 1 m distant from the first position and the process repeated once or twice (an equal number of times within each experimental comparison)." but that seemed to elaborate to try to sort out.

But yesterday, I noticed the tail of a dead fish sticking out from beneath a leaf in the mouth where a small creek met the ocean. Under the leaf was a small swimming crab eating the fish. After observing the fish and the crab, I decided why not try out this stake baiting.

After sticking a twig through the dead fish and pinning it to the sand as described by Wenner and waiting a few minutes I scooped the sand and immediately produced a Hippa crab! I kept doing this at different places along the stretch of beach and produced several more crabs without fail. In fact you don't even have to dig as they protrude from the sand under the fish to begin eating it.

I hope these tips help others find these crabs. I'm amazed how well it worked. But frankly I'm also amazed how others have been able to find these crabs just by digging alone since I was so unsuccessful doing this even on this beach where the stake baiting worked in minutes. These crabs are remarkable in that in many ways they are so similar to Emerita (how they look, how and their niche in the wave wash zone) but in other ways they are so different, their feeding habits are very different, the fact that they are so hard to find (at least for me), and they are much more active and faster than Emerita (they scurry across the sand more like a fast insect whereas Emerita scoot much more clumsily) before digging in.

Question about the Traditional Project Aggregator

Hi all,

iNaturalist still have 797 projects created by 264 project admins that are still using the old Traditional Project "Aggregator". We removed the ability for new Traditional Projects to Aggregate when we launched Collection Projects in 3 years ago and had hoped the legacy projects in that were already using the Aggregator would slowly convert over to Collection Projects. This post is to check in with those still using the Aggregator to try to learn more about why you haven't converted over to a Collection Project as we consider the future of this feature. It being the Northern Hemisphere Spring, we're looking for ways to make iNaturalist more efficient and this clunky Aggregator process which runs hourly on these ~800 projects is something we'd love to phase out.

Some background, Traditional Projects (ignoring the aggregator for the moment) require people to manually add suitable observations to the project. Collection Projects use "Observation Requirement" filters to find suitable observations and automatically display these observations in a project. The aggregator was built before we built Collection Projects to make it so that observations could be automatically added to a project. While Traditional Projects support some features that Collection Projects don't (e.g. requiring observation fields, slightly different details regarding sharing restricted location data, the ability to subset observations that can't be automatically filtered such as "Observation of the Day"), none of these features work well in a Traditional Project with the Aggregator turned on. So we're currently unaware of any reason why a project admin would prefer to stick with a Traditional Project with the Aggregator turned on instead of migrating to a Collection Project.

I've mentioned all 264 project admins along sides their Aggregating Traditional Projects. If you likewise aren't sure why you haven't converted over to a Collection Project we encourage you to do so! Click 'edit' on your project and if you're project can be automatically converted you'll see a banner that looks like this:

If you don't see this banner, it is because there's not a 1-to-1 correspondence between the "Observation Rules" used by your Traditional Project and the "Observation Requirement" used by Collection Projects. For example, Traditional Projects support a "must be on list" rule which would have to be replaced by a series of more than one "Include Taxa" Observation Requirements in a Collection Project. You can try removing the problematic rule, converting the project, and then adding any necessary requirements to the Collection Project. Or if you have specific questions, please add a comment here with links and details and I'll take a look.

Alternatively, if there's a reason why you can't accomplish the goals you're accomplishing with your Aggregating Traditional Project with a Collection Project please let us know here as we'd love to understand these uses cases better.

Lastly, if you are not actively benefitting from the Aggregator being turned on for your project and aren't motivated to convert your project to a Collection Project, please the Aggregator off by editing your project and unchecking "Automatically add observations to this project", many thanks!

Thanks in advance for seeing and responding to this mention!

Kemper's visit to iNat HQ!

It was a treat to meet Yann (aka @kemper) and his little brother during a visit to iNaturalist HQ at the California Academy of Sciences. Yann's in the top 500 observers and top 50 identifiers on iNaturalist and he only just turned 15 today - pretty cool!

Visit to the Lepidoptera Society Meeting

It was an honor to present iNaturalist at the 2019 Lepidoptera Society Meeting yesterday. I got to hear about the very cool work that @marcepstein and @ivonnegarzon are doing incorporating iNaturalist into their research.

I also got to meet some personal informatics hero's: ie Jon Pelham (right) of Butterflies of America, Markku Savela (middle) of Funet.fi, and Steve Nanz of Moth Photographer's Group

Many thanks to Michael Collins (middle) from the Carnegie Museum of Pittsburgh for helping organize and it was a treat to mee Bob Pyle (left), the founder of the Xerces Society!

New World Tylos

I've been looking (and bugging other people to look) for Tylos for a while with no luck. So I was super stoked to find some yesterday in Mexico. Since there's more than one species here, I did some research on New World species. I was able to convince myself I that what I found was T. niveus from the ventral view of the fifth pleonal segments. Referring to Schultz's 1970 A Review of the Species of the Genus Tylos Latreille from the New World (Isopoda, Oniscoidea) there are 5 new World Species:
T. latreille (Widespread)
T. niveus (Widespread)
T. wageneri (Widespread)
T. punctatus (Pacific)
T. spinulosus (Southern Chile)
And in his followup 1974 Terrestrial Isopod Crustaceans (Oniscoidea) mainly from the West Indies and adjacent regions 1. Tylos and Ligia, published in STUDIES ON THE FAUNA OF CURAÇAO AND OTHER CARIBBEAN ISLANDS he added T. marcuzzii which is at least in the West Indies.
But luckily the shape of the fifth pleonal segments as seen from the ventral view is pretty distinct. I've pasted in Schultz's illustrations of this character for all 6 species from these two papers and taken the liberty of coloring them in red. I also included and colored a photo from my observation which matches T. niveus well and none of the other species. (note T. wageneri's fifth pleonal segments don't even curve under enough to be visible ventrally so I colored in them on the dorsal view illustration and added a red line pointing to the ventral view illustration where they are missing.
