Resumo: Recently, two authors (Sattler & Sattler, 1965 and McWilliams, 1969) independently reported on a species of Sesarma Say, 1817 found in Brazil living in water of the basal leaves or tanks of bromeliad epiphytes. Sattler & Sattler (1965) reported the species as Sesarma ricordi H. Milne Edwards, 1853 , and gave notes on its habitat, stomach contents and behavior. McWilliams (1969) reported the species as Sesarma miersii Rathbun, 1897, and gave notes on its habitat and color. Both authors report finding the crabs only in bromeliads, despite searching the área for additional specimens. Both S. ricordi and S. miersii have often been confused with a closely related species, S. angustipes Dana, 1852. Examination of some of McWilliams material and the photographs of Sattler & Sattler leave little doubt that both authors were dealing with the same species, S. angustipes. Unfortunately, I overlooked these papers in an earlier report (Abele, 1972) and I wish here to give the first complete synonymy of S. angustipes and to summarize the available information on the biology of this interesting species. The abbreviation USNM refers to the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., and cb refers to carapace breadth measured at midline.
