FRAAIJE, René H.B. et al. A new hermit crab (Crustacea, Anomura, Paguroidea) from the mid-Cretaceous of Navarra, Northern Spain. Bol. Soc. Geol. Mex [online]. 2009, vol.61, n.2, pp.211-214. ISSN 1405-3322.
Recent fieldwork (June 2008) in the reefal limestones near Alsasua, Navarra (northern Spain) has resulted in the discovery of a new species of diogenid hermit crab, Annuntidiogenes wotfi sp. nov., which appears closely related to the type species of the genus, A. ruizdegaonai Fraaije et al., 2008, from Monte Orobe and also of mid-Cretaceous (Albian-Cenomanian) age. The new specimen represents only the third paguroid carapace of Cretaceous age to be described and formally named.
