A new squat lobster (Crustacea, Anomura, Munididae) from the Pliocene of Monterotondo Marittimo (Tuscany, Italy)
AbstractWe report a new species of squat lobster from the Plio- cene of Monterotondo Marittimo (Grosseto, Tuscany, Italy). The speci- mens have been assigned to the fossil and extant Munida Leach, 1820, with M. grossetana n. sp. (Munididae Ahyong, Baba, MacPherson & Poore, 2010). Munida grossetana n. sp. represents the first report for the genus in the Mediterranean area, enlarging the palaeogeographic distribution for the genus.
