Abstract
    The Indo-Pacific species of Calappa Weber, 1795 are revised. Specimens have been collected from the intertidal to depths over 380 m, with nine species from water depths greater than 100 m. One new genus of calappid crab is established: Calappula, for Calappa saussurei Rathburn, 1898 and C. tortugae Rathbun, 1933 from each side of the Central American Isthmus. Five new species are described: C. conifera, C. matsuzawa, C. monilicanthus, C. sebastieni, C. torulosa. All taxa are described and illustrated, detailed synonymies are listed, and a key is provided.
