Quick facts for kidsAcutigebia danai
Adam White had described Upogebia hirtifrons in 1847 from an Antarctic expedition, and when James Dwight Dana examined material from Bay of Islands, New Zealand, he assigned them to White's species. However, Edward J. Miers realised that the two were different species, and described the New Zealand species as Gebia danai, commemorating Dana in the specific epithet. Both species are now known to occur in New Zealand.
