ABSTRACT The effect of cheliped autotomy on limb regeneration was studied in the East African fiddler crabs Uca lactea and U. chlorophthalmus. Autotomy of either a minor or major cheliped accelerated regeneration of ambulatory limbs in male Uca. The degree of acceleration of regeneration was generally comparable to that observed in eyestalkless male Uca. The autotomy of one minor cheliped in female Uca was without observable effect. Autotomy of two minor chelipeds in females gave acceleration of regeneration comparable to the autotomy of one cheliped in males. The effect of minor cheliped autotomy was comparable in both species studied.
