Abstract

The entire collection of African and Madagascan freshwater crabs in the Museum of Natural History, Vienna has been re-evaluated. A great deal of incorrectly determined and unidentified material has now been identified, and the nomenclature of correctly identified specimens has been updated to conform to modern usage. The collection has been shown to include 16 species of Potamonautes, 6 species of Sudanonautes, 2 species each of Platythelphusa, Hydrothelphusa, and Deckenia, and 1 species each of Potamonemus, Louisea, Liberonautes, Gecarcinautes and Potamon. Notable additions brought to light include the little known species Louisea edeaensis, Potamonemus sachsi, Platythelphusa conculata, Potamonautes pilosus, P. neumanni, P. triangulus and P. walderi. Der Bestand der Süβwasserkrabben aus Afrika und Madagaskar in der Sammlung des Naturhistorischen Museums in Wien wurde untersucht. Unbestimmtes Material wurde determiniert; die meisten Bestimmungen waren zu korrigieren bzw. die Namen dem jetzigen Stand der Taxonomie dieser Gruppe anzupassen. In der Sammlung befinden sich 16 Arten der Gattung Potamonautes, 6 Arten der Gattung Sudanonautes, je zwei Arten der Gattungen Platythelphusa, Deckenia und Hydrothelphusa, sowie je eine Art der Gattungen Potamonemus, Louisea, Liberonautes, Gecarcinautes, und Potamon. Bemerkenswert ist das Vorhandensein einiger nur von wenigen Exemplaren bekannte Arten, wie Louisea edeaensis, Potamonemus sachsi, Platythelphusa conculata, Potamonautes pilosus, P. neumanni, P. triangulus und P. walderi.
