The original figures of Scyllaridae by Lesueur and manuscript descriptions and notes by Péron, made during the 1800-1804 French Expedition to Australia, are now kept in the Museum d'Histoire Naturelle du Havre, and shed new light on the identity, type locality and whereabouts of these species. The figures and part of the descriptive material are reproduced here.
