Abstract
    These keys are intended to be mainly used in the field, by non-specialists. For this reason, characters have not been used if only visible under microscope (such as reproductive apparatus details). We also will reduce the morphological terminology to a minimum (see Figs. 1 and 2). The keys apply to Kenya but can easily be applied to any mangrove crabs from central Somalia to Tanzania. More species are known from Madagascar, southern Mozambique and Natal where, on the other hand, some of the northern species are missing. We hope soon to be able to produce a keyword for the whole of East Africa.
