 Comments
       
  Comment: McLaughlin et al. (2005) notes: "Paguroidea. J. Forest, 1987, Mém. Mus. Natl. Hist. Nat., Ser. A, Zool. 137:9, reinstated the superfamily Coenobitoidea, suppressed by P. A. McLaughlin, 1983, J. Crustac. Biol. 3(4):616, and united the superfamilies Coenobitoidea and Paguroidea under the section Paguridea. J. W. Martin and G. E. Davis, 2001, Nat. Hist. Mus. Los Angel. Cty. Sci. Ser. 39:48, have now proposed a classification that reverts back to the P. A. McLaughlin (loc. cit.) classification for hermit crabs."
