Limulus xiphosura [Lim.]
Horse-foot - King-crab
Limulus was introduced by C. Hering
and partially proved by him and Lippe. Hering was surprised to see the blood of
the King crab that he dissected, blue, which on investigation, was found to
contain copper as he had surmised and which he thought would prove to be another
medicine for Cholera. Further provings are necessary to establish this, though
symptoms so far observed make this probable. Hering's fertile mind always lead
him to pioneer paths into practical therapeutics.
