The evolutionary history and relationships of the mud shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda: Gebiidea and Axiidea) are contentious, with previous attempts revealing mixed results. The mud shrimps were once classified in the infraorder Thalassinidea. Recent molecular phylogenetic analyses, however, suggest separation of the group into two individual infraorders,(More)
The red-spot prawn, Metapenaeopsis barbata, is a commercially important, widely distributed demersal species in the Indo-West Pacific Ocean. Overfishing has made its populations decline in the past decade. To study conservation genetics, eight polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated. Genetic characteristics of the SSR (simple sequence repeat)(More)
Nine polymorphic microsatellite makers were isolated and characterized in 20 individuals of Parapenaeopsis hardwickii collected from the fishing ground near Ilan, Taiwan. Number of alleles per locus ranged from 3 to 8, observed and expected heterozygosities ranged from 0.5263 to 0.7632, and from 0.4225 to 0.8044, respectively. Only one locus showed a(More)
