Abstract

A collection of Majoidea Samouelle, 1819 crabs carried out during the KARUBENTHOS 2012 Expedition to Guadeloupe Island and sorted during an international workshop at Besse-et-Saint-Anastaise in 2013 is reported. A total of 60 species are identified, 30 being new records for Guadeloupe Island. Each species is presented with notes on habitat, geographical distribution and previous records for the Lesser Antilles. A documented list of 42 additional Majoidea species is also proposed for the Lesser Antilles Islands based on a bibliographic research. A total of 102 Majoidea crabs are currently reported from the Lesser Antilles, of which 81 around Guadeloupe Island.
