New decapod assemblage from the Upper Cretaceous (Cenomanian-Turonian) of Gara Sbaa, southeastern Morocco
The report of decapod crustaceans from the "Hamada des Kem Kem" slope (SE Morocco) has previously been limited to only one report by Garassino et al. (2006). The recent disco- very of macrurans,Expand
The decapod community from the Early Pliocene (Zanclean) of “La Serra” quarry (San Miniato, Pisa, Toscana, central Italy): sedimentology, systematics, and palaeoenvironmental implications
An unusual and rich decapod crustacean assemblage from the early Pliocene (Zanclean), recently collected during the excavations of the “La Serra” quarry, located in La Serra, near San Miniato, Pisa, central Italy, is reported, indicative of a palaeoenvironment of shallow sublittoral water. Expand
New decapod crustaceans (Thalassinidea, Galatheoidea, Brachyura) from the Middle Oligocene of Patagonia, Argentina
The species of Trichopeltarion and Asthenoi'nathiis described herein are the oldest known representatives of their respective genera, and Astlienognatliiis is one of the oldestknown genera within the Pinnotheridae de Haan, 1833. Expand
Marocarcinidae, a new eubrachyuran family, and Marocarcinus pasinii n. gen., n. sp. from the Upper Cretaceous (Cenomanian-Turonian) of Gara Sbaa, southeastern Morocco (Crustacea, Decapoda, Brachyura)
A new family, Marocarcinidae with Marocarcinus pasinii n. gen., n. sp. is described for several specimens from the Upper Cretaceous (Cenomanian-Turonian) of the "Hamada des Kem Kem" escarpment (SEExpand
Brachyuran and anomuran fauna from the Cenozoic of Piedmont (NW Italy)
The discovery of decapod crustaceans from the Cenozoic of the Piedmont Region (NW Italy) was until now limited to reports by A. Sismonda and Larghi, but the recent discovery of brachyurans and anomurans from some localities in Novara, Asti, Alessandria and Biella provinces increases the carcinologic knowledge in Italy. Expand
New report of the coral-associated decapods from the early Messinian (Late Miocene) of Acquabona, Rosignano Marittimo (Toscana, Italy)
We report a coral-associated decapods from the early Messinian (Late Miocene) of Acquabona, Rosignano Marittimo, Livorno (Toscana, Italy). This study allowed to identify these spe- cies, as follows:Expand
A new hermit crab (Crustacea, Anomura, Paguroidea) from the Late Cretaceous (Cenomanian) of Lebanon
A hermit crab from the Late Cretaceous (Cenomanian) is reported for the fi rst time from Lebanon. The studied specimen has been ascribed to the superfamily Paguroidea Latreille, 1802, inclu- dingExpand
Munida casadioi (Schweitzer & Feldmann, 2000) from the Eocene of the Bariloche area, Patagonia (Argentina)
Originally the type species of a new genus, it is found that this is only a species of the genus Munida Leach, 1820. Expand
Galatheids, chirostylids and porcellanids (Crustacea, Decapoda, Anomura) from the Eocene and Oligocene of Vicenza (northern Italy)
The anomuran faunas were collected from the lower strata in this succession, along the road from Monte Magre to Monte di Malo, which contain nummulitid foraminifera, nodules and fragments of coralligenous algae, and moulds of corals, molluscs and other decapod crustaceans. Expand
New reports of anomurans and brachyurans from the Cenozoic of Tuscany (Italy)
Anomurans and brachyurans from Tuscany have previously been reported by Cappellini (1874), Fucini (1910), Ristori (1886, 1888, 1891, 1892, 1896), Vinassa de Regny (1897), and Delle Cave (1988a, b).Expand
