Remarques pour Mayotte
These specimens were first attributed to Pagurixus aff. maorus. While this study was submitted they were correctly identified to P. rubrovittatus, by T. Komai (MNHN, June 2011). Pagurixus rubrovittatus closely resembles P. maorus in morphology and coloration by can be easily separated by absence of longitudinal rows of setae on the ventral surface of the ultimate segment of the antennular peduncle. Others morphological characters useful to separate both species are in Komai (2010).
