Heads up: Some or all of the identifications affected by this split may have been replaced with identifications of Ocypodidae. This happens when we can't automatically assign an identification to one of the output taxa. Review identifications of Uca 51930

iNat's policy is to follow WoRMs for Crab (Brachyura) taxonomy. They adopted changes proposed in http://web.nchu.edu.tw/~htshih/acad/pdf/Shih&2016_Ocypodidae_revision_s.pdf to split Uca into two groups Broad-fronted and Indo-west Pacific Fiddler Crabs (Subfamily Gelasiminae) and American Narrow-fronted and East Atlantic Fiddler Crabs (Subfamily Ucinae). I wrote this blog post to try to alleviate some of the confusion these taxonomic changes have sown https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/fiddler-crabs/journal/17610-fiddler-crab-taxonomy
