Although U. salsisitus Oliveira, 1939, has been placed as a junior synonym of U. rapax (Smith, 1870), a possible synonymy with Uca vocator (Herbst, 1804) has never been discarded. The retrieval of one male paratype of U. salsisitus and its confrontation with U. rapax and U. vocator shed light on the synonymy of U. salsisitus. It is shown that the type series of Uca salsisitus actually includes two species: Oliveira's original description was based upon U. vocator (Herbst), while the illustrations he provided and the retrieved male paratype correspond to U. rapax (Smith).

Embora U. salsisitus Oliveira, 1939, tenha sido colocado na sinonímia de U. rapax (Smith, 1870), uma possível sinonímia com Uca vocator (Herbst, 1804) nunca foi descartada. A redescoberta de um macho parátipo de U. salsisitus e o confronto deste com U. rapax e U. vocator, permitiu esclarecer alguns aspectos da sinonímia de U. salsisitus. Este trabalho mostra que a série tipo de Uca salsisitus na verdade inclui duas espécies: Oliveira baseou sua descrição original em U. vocator (Herbst), enquanto que as figuras que ilustram o seu trabalho e o macho parátipo redescoberto correspondem a U. rapax (Smith).
