ABSTRACT Surveys of Kuwait sand and mudflats reveal two species of fiddler crabs, Uca lactea annulipes and U. inversa sindensis. It is proposed primarily on the grounds of male pleopod morphology that the latter subspecies be accorded specific status as U. sindensis. Observed ecological separation between the two species appears to be due to differences in feeding morphology and related to sediments of differing particle size and organic content.
