The endemic South American family of freshwater crabs, the Aeglidae, currently consists of two genera: the fossil Haumuriaegla and the extant Aegla. In the latter genus there are 60 described species from the Southern cone (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay), with their distribution being limited between latitudes 20ºS and 50ºS. Very little is known about the reproductive biology of Aegla.
