Abstract:

The morphological characters of marine hermit crabs from mangrove forests and rocky and sandy shores around Zee-phyu-thaung and its adjacent coastal areas were conducted from September to November 2018. Consequently, a total of 5 species in 2 genera and 1 family were identified with their distinguished characters including Clibanarius infraspinatus (Hilgendorf, 1869), Clibanarius padavensis De Man, 1888, Clibanarius merguiensis de Man, 1888, Diogenes edwardsii (De Haan, 1849) and Diogenes alias McLaughlin & Holthuis, 2001. Among them, C. padavensis (Bosc, 1802) and D. alias McLaughlin & Holthuis, 2001 were first records for Myanmar’s hermit crabs. Moreover, C. padavensis and D. edwardsii was the most abundance species in Zee-phyu-thaung.
