This species is described from Estelline Salt Spring, Estelline, Hall County, in the Panhandle. It is very much like H. oregonensis of the Pacific coast but differs in a number of morphic characteristics. The remarkable nature of the occurrence of crabs of this marine genus 500 miles inland in an arid area is pointed out, as is the probability that the new species is probably already extinct.
