A new hypothesis of decapod phylogeny
A cladistic analysis based on external morphology was carried out on 60 taxa of decapod crustaceans, finding that none of the traditional groups Palinura, Anomura, and Macrura is monophyletic.
Checklist of Marine Biota of China Seas
- F. Schram
- 1 April 2010
This hefty volume systematically records the Chinese marine biota as currently understood and provides the scientific names in both Latin and Chinese, including original designation, the main synonyms, and the geographical distributions in China seas and the world oceans of all species.
Phylogeny of decapods: moving towards a consensus
- F. Schram
- 1 April 2001
Although the recognition of four broad groups within Decapoda has long been a staple of textbooks and even the primary taxonomic literature, a precise resolution of phylogenetic relationships within the order has proved more difficult.
Thylacocephala (Arthropoda: Crustacea?) from the Cretaceous of Lebanon and implications for thylacocephalan systematics
An intensive study of a collection of arthropods from the Cretaceous of Lebanon reveals that these forms belong to the problematical arthropod class Thylacocephala, and unique characters of at least the genus Protozoea are the numerous ‘pits’ covering the entire carapace, elongated anterior rostral and posterior spines, and a dorsal hinge indicative of a truly bivalved carapaces.
Mitochondrial DNA and Decapod Phylogenies: The Importance of 47 Pseudogenes and Primer Optimization
Family level classification within Thylacocephala, with comments on their evolution and possible relationships
- F. Schram
This work proposes a redefinition of the two orders, and recognition of seven families, five of them new, of thylacocephala, a distinct class composed of two orders composed of Concavicarida and Conchyliocarida.
THE LATE DEVONIAN PALAEOPALAEMONIDAE AND THE EARLIEST DECAPOD CRUSTACEANS
A detailed study of the anatomy leads to the conclusion that P. newberryi is the earliest recognized decapod eucarid crustacean with characters of both the glypheoidean palinurans and astacideans.
New Genus and Species from the Cretaceous of Lebanon Links the Thylacocephala To the Crustacea
The apparent presence of two pairs of antennae constitutes the first available morphological evidence for a close relationship between this species and, by association, all thylacocephalans, and the Crustacea.
Cladistic analysis of the Cirripedia Thoracica
A cladistic analysis of the Cirripedia Thoracica using morphological characters and the Acrothoracica and Ascothoracida as outgroups reveals that several key questions in cirripede phylogeny remain unsolved, notably the position of shell-less forms and the transition from `pedunculate' to `sessile' barnacles.
