In addition to its unique body color, Gecarcinus nobilii sp. The new species is not isolated from Gecarcinus populations from the Pacific coast of Central America by an insurmountable geographic barrier. Considering the closure of the Panamanian Isthmus as a calibration point for morphological divergence between the trans-isthmian mainland populations of Gecarcinus, the virtual lack of morphological differentiation other than color between them and the distinctness of G.
Milne Edwards, , play an important ecological role on many tropical islands see Lindquist et al. On some islands their biomass may exceed the total mass of animals reported in tropical rain forests in Costa Rica and the central Amazon Lindquist et al. Only Johngarthia planata Stimpson, see Perger and two populations of the Neotropical genus Gecarcinus are successfully established on the continental mainland.
Hartnoll ; Boyko ; Capistran-Barrados et al. Abele and Kim ; Tavares ; Ng et al. As in trans-isthmian Gecarcinus, the taxonomical status of the South American Pacific population has been uncertain. However, such color forms have not been observed in other areas see Bright ; Chace and Hobbs ; Martinez and Bliss , nor were such color forms observed in a field sample of individuals carapace width mm from the Pacific and Atlantic coastline of Central America Table 1 ; Fig.
