Clearly, the taxonomic situation within the Xanthidae s.l. is confused and relationships among the presently accepted panopeid genera are complex. If pleopod characters are used to the exclusion of other characters such as carapace morphology, then the panopeid genera are in need of further revision. Specifically, the genus Panopeus could be expanded to include several species currently in other genera or other subfamilies (the Eucratopsinae), while some species placed by Guinot (1978) in the Panopeinae do not seem to warrant a close relationship to Panopeus. We hope that, rather than adding to the existing systematic confusion, our compilation of data will be of some benefit to future systematists attempting to elucidate panopeid phylogeny.
