Studies on Brachyura: a Homage to Danièle Guinot  
Potamonautes loveni (Colosi, 1924) from western Kenya and eastern Uganda is resurrected from synonymy and redescribed as a valid species. This taxon is compared with similar species and its distribution, ecology, and conservation status are discussed. Potamonautes loveni has been implicated in the transmission of onchocerciasis in the highland areas of parts of East Africa.
