A Classification of Living and Fossil Genera of Decapod Crustaceans
TLDR
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. Expand
Systematic List of Fossil Decapod Crustacean Species
TLDR
This chapter discusses the classification of the fossil decapod crustaceans and some of the conventions employed within the text. Expand
A comprehensive and integrative reconstruction of evolutionary history for Anomura (Crustacea: Decapoda)
TLDR
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. Expand
REVISION OF PORTUNOIDEA RAFINESQUE, 1815 (DECAPODA: BRACHYURA) WITH EMPHASIS ON THE FOSSIL GENERA AND FAMILIES
TLDR
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. Expand
Gondwanan Radiation of the Southern Hemisphere Crayfishes (Decapoda: Parastacidae): Evidence from Fossils and Molecules
TLDR
The estimated phylogenetic relationships and time of divergence among the Southern Hemisphere crayfishes were consistent with an east-west pattern of Gondwanan divergence, and the hypothesis that there was a complete drowning of New Zealand crayfish habitat is rejected. Expand
A new Classification for some Jurassic Brachyura (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura: Homolodromioidea): families GoniodromitidaeBeurlen, 1932 and Tanidromitidae new family
TLDR
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. Expand
The emergence of lobsters: phylogenetic relationships, morphological evolution and divergence time comparisons of an ancient group (decapoda: achelata, astacidea, glypheidea, polychelida).
TLDR
This study estimated phylogenetic relationships among the major groups of all lobster families and 94% of the genera using six genes (mitochondrial and nuclear) and 195 morphological characters across 173 species of lobsters for the most comprehensive sampling to date. Expand
Correlation of Marine Beds Based on Sr- and Ar-date Determinations and Faunal Affinities across the Paleogene/Neogene Boundary in Southern Patagonia, Argentina
Abstract The San Julian and Monte Leon formations (“Patagonian”) are exposed along the Atlantic coast of Patagonia, whereas in the west equivalent rocks are known as Centinela Formation. SixteenExpand
UTILITY OF PROXY CHARACTERS FOR CLASSIFICATION OF FOSSILS: AN EXAMPLE FROM THE FOSSIL XANTHOIDEA (CRUSTACEA: DECAPODA: BRACHYURA)
TLDR
The identification of carpiliids and pseudoziids in the fossil record yields critical information about the time of divergence of these groups, no later than Eocene, and the relationships between those two families, the Eriphiidae and the extinct Zanthopsidae. Expand
PALEOBIOGEOGRAPHY OF CRETACEOUS AND TERTIARY DECAPOD CRUSTACEANS OF THE NORTH PACIFIC OCEAN
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 theExpand
