CAMPOS, Martha R  and  GUERRA, Luis A. Propuesta de sinonimia para las especies de cangrejo dulceacuícola Hypolobocera solimani e Hypolobocera triangula de Colombia. Rev. biol. trop [online]. 2008, vol.56, n.3, pp.987-994. ISSN 0034-7744.

A proposal to synonymize the freshwater crab species Hypolobocera solimani and Hypolobocera triangula from Colombia. It is proposed that Hypolobocera solimani and H. triangula be considered junior synonyms of H. alata and H. rotundilobata, respectively. We state that the following morphological differences represent natural variations within the population: a) first male gonopod, third maxilliped and larger cheliped between H. alata and H. solimani, and b) the differences of the first male gonopod between H. rotundilobata and H. triangula. Rev. Biol. Trop. 56 (3): 987-994. Epub 2008 September 30.

Keywords : Hypolobocera solimani; Hypolobocera triangula; freshwater crabs; Pseudothelphusidae; Colombia; junior synonym.
