A Classification of Living and Fossil Genera of Decapod Crustaceans
This compilation is the first comprehensive estimate of taxonomic diversity within the entire Decapoda, listing all known families and genera organized by higher taxonomic groups and including estimates of the number of species in every genus.
Systematic List of Fossil Decapod Crustacean Species
This chapter discusses the classification of the fossil decapod crustaceans and some of the conventions employed within the text.
A comprehensive and integrative reconstruction of evolutionary history for Anomura (Crustacea: Decapoda)
This work reconstructs the evolutionary history—phylogeny, divergence times, character evolution and diversification— of this speciose clade of Anomura, and suggests that the acquisition of a crab-like form did not act as a key innovation.
REVISION OF PORTUNOIDEA RAFINESQUE, 1815 (DECAPODA: BRACHYURA) WITH EMPHASIS ON THE FOSSIL GENERA AND FAMILIES
The analyses indicate that the superfamily Portunoidea is much more diverse at the family level than has previously been recognized, and three subfamilies are elevated to family status.

The hypotheses that the break‐up of Gondwana has led to a predominately east–west or a southern pattern for parastacid crayfish are tested and the evidence for a complete drowning of New Zealand and subsequent colonization by freshwater cray fish is examined.
Phylogeny and Systematics of Extant and Extinct Lobsters
A phylogenetic analysis including representatives from 44 extinct and 27 extant families of lobsters resulted in the recognition of one new superfamily, Glaessnericarioidea, and three new families, Glasnericariidae, Neoglypheidae, and Litogastroidae.

Abstract Comprehensive analysis of the Cretaceous and Tertiary decapod crustaceans of the North Pacific Rim, focused primarily on the Brachyura, has resulted in additions to our understanding of the…
A new Classification for some Jurassic Brachyura (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura: Homolodromioidea): families GoniodromitidaeBeurlen, 1932 and Tanidromitidae new family
A new family, Tanidromitidae, and two new genera are erected to embrace several Jurassic species of brachyurans from northern Europe, based upon their possession of a unique combination of orbital and dorsal carapace characters.
Correlation of Marine Beds Based on Sr- and Ar-date Determinations and Faunal Affinities across the Paleogene/Neogene Boundary in Southern Patagonia, Argentina
Revision of the Prosopinae sensu Glaessner, 1969 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura) Including Four New Families, Four New Genera, and Five New Species
Recognition of two superfamilies for Jurassic Brachyura confirms the previous hypotheses of FELDMANN et al. (2007), SCHWEITZER & FELDmanN (2008], and SCHWEitZer & Fldmann (2008] that JurassicBrachyura were much more diverse than previously recognized.
