Abstract: The pantropical crab Cronius ruber (Lamarck, 1818) (Brachyura: Portunidae) is recorded for the first time from the Canary Islands. Previously known from off Cape Verde Islands and Senegal, this is the northernmost record of the species in the eastern Atlantic Ocean. Crabs have been caught by means of a collecting small trap for sampling in shallow waters, and then identified by both morphological characters and DNA barcoding (16S).
El cangrejo pantropical Cronius ruber (Lamarck, 1818) (Brachyura: Portunidae) es citado por primera vez en las Islas Canarias. Previamente conocido de las Islas Cabo Verde y Senegal, el presente constituye el registro más septentrional de esta especie en el Atlántico oriental. Los cangrejos fueron recolectados mediante un arte de trampa (pequeña nasa usada para muestreo en aguas someras) y posteriormente identificados a partir de sus caracteres morfológicos y mediante código de barras genético (DNA barcoding (16S)).
