The Sesarmidae are a family of crabs, previously included in the Grapsidae by many authors. Several species, namely in Geosesarma, Metopaulias, and Sesarma, are true terrestrial crabs. They do not need to return to the sea even for breeding.
The family contains these genera:
The genera Chiromantes, Parasesarma, Pseudosesarma and Sesarmops are apparently not monophyletic. Scandarma may be a junior synonym of some other genus.Chiromantes dehaani – kurobenkeigani (Japanese)
Chiromantes eulimene – marsh crab (east coast of southern Africa)
Chiromantes haematocheir – red-clawed crab; akategani (Japanese) Dodukge (Korean)
Parasesarma erythrodactyla – red-handed shore crab
Parasesarma pictum – kakubenkeigani (Japanese)
