New genus, two new species of box crabs.


Exploratory trawling with the old Bureau of Commercial Fisheries research vessels Pelican, Combat, Silver Bay, and Oregon, and with the NOAA research vessel Oregon II, yielded large collections of decapod crustaceans which were stored at the National Museum of Natural History. Recent study of those crustaceans has produced one genus (Cyclozodion) and two species of box crabs (family Calappidae) in the Northwest Atlantic new to science.
