Article: A new spider-crab from the Miocene of New Zealand
R. J. F. Jenkins
Actinotocarcinus chidgeyi gen. et sp. nov. from the Waiauan or Middle Miocene of North Canterbury, New Zealand, is a long-spined, spider-crab belonging to the family Majidae Samouelle, 1819. While it shows a mosaic of individual features present within other subfamilies of the Majidae it differs from all in its total combination of characters, and a new subfamily Actinotocarcininae subfam. nov. is erected to contain it.
