Triangle. [3] It is known in Bermuda as the small Spanish lobster, a name which is
also favoured by the FAO. [3]                                                                                        Conservation status

A. guineensis was described in 1799, making it one of the first slipper lobsters to be
described, and only the second from the Western Atlantic (after Scyllarides                                Subphylum:            Crustacea

aequinoctialis in 1793).[4] The Hawaiian species Arctides regalis was previously                           Class:                Malacostraca
considered to belong to the same species as A. guineensis, but the two differ in the                       Order:                Decapoda
number and placement of the spines on the carapace.[5] In the original description                         Infraorder:           Achelata
of the species, Lorenz Spengler gave the type locality as "Dens Fædreneland er
                                                                                                           Family:               Scyllaridae

                                                                                                           Genus:                Arctides
to have ever occurred near Africa, and this locality is probably an error. [3] The
species was also described by Pierre André Latreille in 1818 under the name                                Species:              A. guineensis
Scyllarus sculptus, citing a type locality of "Méditerranée" (Mediterranean Sea),                                        Binomial name
which is also unlikely.[4]                                                                                           Arctides guineensis
