Systematic review of American Cyclodorippidae (Crustacea, Decapoda, Brachyura)

A review is presented of all the Cyclodorippidae from the Americas, on both the Atlantic and Pacific sides. Presently, a total of five genera and twenty species are known exclusively from this region. A sixth genus, Corycodus A. Milne Edwards, 1880, is known outside this region, being represented by four additional species in the Indo-West Pacific. Keys to the subfamilies, genera and species are provided, as well as illustrations for all species.
