Munida mexicana Benedict, 1902: 264 , fig. 13. — Hendrickx 1993 a: 7 (list); 1993 b: 309 (table); 1996: 616 (list); 2000: 175, figs. 7, 8. — Hendrickx & Harvey 1999: 375 (list). — Baba 2005: 268 (list). — Fierro et al. 2008: 6 (list). — Baba et al. 2008: 106 View Cited Treatment (list).

Material examined. TALUD XIV. St. 32 (27 ° 56 ' 13 "N, 111 ° 19 ' 44 "W), 11 Apr 2011, 3 ovig. females (CL 3.9–4.3 mm; CLr 4.7 –6,3 mm), 122–123 m, benthic sledge (EMU- 8944).

Fecundity. One ovigerous female from St. 32 is 4.7 mm CLr, the smallest size reported so far for this species. Females carry ca 150– 200 eggs per female. Egg size, 0.44–0.53 mm (based on 20 eggs).

Remarks. Munida mexicana has been reported by Hendrickx (2000) as a common and abundant species on the continental shelf of the Gulf of California, in depth from 30 to 102 – 110 m (maximum known depth: 145 m; Benedict 1902).

Ecology. Epibenthic values of temperature (13.7 °C) and dissolved oxygen (2.77 ml O 2 /l) (Table 1) fit well within the known range reported for this species (Hendrickx 2003).
