[The freshwater crab family Potamidae is classified into two subfamilies based on differences in the structure of the eighth thoracic sternite; one, the Potaminae, which is distributed in Europe, North Africa, Socotra island (Yemen), the Near East, Middle East, northern India and Myanmar; and the other, the Potamiscinae, which occurs in East and Southeast Asia. Their distributions are quite distinct, overlapping only in northeastern India and Myanmar. The genus Potamon s. str. is, therefore, clearly absent from the fauna of East Asia. La famille de crabes d'eau douce des Potamidae est classée en deux sous-familles sur la base de différences portant sur la structure du huitième sternite thoracique; l'une, les Potaminae, est répartie en Europe, en Afrique du Nord, dans l'île de Socotra (Yemen), le Proche-Orient, le Moyen-Orient, le nord de l'Inde et le Myanmar; l'autre, les Potamiscinae, se trouvent dans l'est et le sud-est asiatique. Leurs répartitions sont distinctes, ne se recouvrant que dans l'Inde nord-orientale et le Myanmar. Le genre Potamon s. str. est donc clairement absent de la faune de l'Asie orientale. , The freshwater crab family Potamidae is classified into two subfamilies based on differences in the structure of the eighth thoracic sternite; one, the Potaminae, which is distributed in Europe, North Africa, Socotra island (Yemen), the Near East, Middle East, northern India and Myanmar; and the other, the Potamiscinae, which occurs in East and Southeast Asia.
