The horseshoe crab Limulus polyphemus (Linnaeus, 1758) is a famous species, renowned as a 'living fossil' (Owen, 1873; Barthel, 1974; Kin and Błażejowski, 2014) for its apparently little-changed morphology for many millions of years. The genus Limulus Müller, 1785 was used by Leach (1819, p. 536) as the basis of a new family Limulidae and synonymized it with Polyphemus Lamarck, 1801 (Lamarck's proposed but later unaccepted replacement for Limulus, as discussed by Van der Hoeven, 1838, p. 8) anddoi:10.25417/uic.14298011 fatcat:o2ofeimjcbh6ddo26qg26lthoq
