Portunus pelagicus (Linnaeus, 1766) accepted
Portunus pelagicus A. Milne Edwards, 1861 synonym

This species, which is commercially important in most Australian mainland states, was previously known as Portunus pelagicus, and is part of the P. pelagicus species complex widespread in the Indo-Pacific region. This complex has recently been shown to be four separate species, see Lai, Ng & Davie, 2010. This code replaces previous (interim) CAAB code 00 702003 (FISHLIST 702003).

Taxon concept reallocated to Portunus pelagicus (Linnaeus, 1758) by taxonomy builder to resolve authorship clash

Portunus pelagicus Linnaeus, 1758 accepted

This wide-spread Indo-Pacific species is currently only known in Australia from the Darwin area in the Northern Territory - it is NOT the very similar Australian commercial blue swimmer crab that is found and fished in most mainland states, which is now called Portunus armatus. Records of this species from New Zealand are also all referable to P. armatus. See Lai, Ng & Davie (2010) for descriptions and differences.

Portunus pelagicus synonym

This code is provided for use for all Blue Swimmer Crabs previously included within Portunus pelagicus, which has now been revised to include several different species, see Lai, Ng & Davie (2010). This code is provided for use when identification of a specimen to this level is sufficient, or when no further detail is available.
