Homolodromiidae is a family of crabs, the only family in the superfamily Homolodromioidea.[1] In contrast to other crabs, including the closely related Homolidae, there is no strong linea homolica along which the exoskeleton breaks open during ecdysis.[2] The family comprises two genera, Dicranodromia, which has 18 species, and Homolodromia, with five species.[1]
