Towards better correlation of the Central Paratethys regional time scale with the standard geological time scale of the Miocene Epoch
Abstract Depositional sequences originating in semi-enclosed basins with endemic biota, partly or completely isolated from the open ocean, frequently do not allow biostratigraphic correlations with

The results suggest that the circum-Mediterranean marine decapod taxa migrated in an easterly direction during the Oligocene and/or Miocene, establishing present-day decapod communities in the Indo-West Pacific.
Systematics, phylogeny, and taphonomy of ghost shrimps (Decapoda): a perspective from the fossil record.
Preliminary results suggest that the ghost shrimp clade emerged not before the Hauterivian (~ 133 Ma), and the divergence of Ctenochelidae and Paracalliacinae is estimated to occur within the interval of HautERivian to Albian (133-100 Ma).
An appraisal of the fossil record for the Cirolanidae (Malacostraca: Peracarida: Isopoda: Cymothoida), with a description of a new cirolanid isopod crustacean from the early Miocene of the Vienna
An appraisal of the fossil record for the cirolanid isopods is presented and it is concluded that Cirolana feldmanni sp.
An early Miocene deep‐water decapod crustacean faunule from the Slovenian part of the Styrian Basin, and its palaeoenvironmental and palaeobiogeographical significance
It is concluded that the exchange of decapod faunas between these regions was probably regulated by an anti‐estuarine circulation permitting an easier incursion of species from the Proto‐Mediterranean into the Paratethys and simultaneous hindering theParatethyan endemics (Styrioplax) from entering the Mediterranean.
Tanidromites insignis (von Meyer, 1857) (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura) from Late Jurassic non-biohermal facies of the Western Tethys (Pieniny Klippen Belt, Western Carpathians, Slovakia)
The first decapod crustacean remains from Late Jurassic limestones of the Pieniny Klip- pen Belt (Western Carpathians, Slovakia) are recorded and comprises a single dorsal carapace of the homolodromioid crab, Tanidromites insignis, as well as several fragments of chelipeds of unknown affinity which, however, might belong to primitive brachyurans.
In situ mud shrimps ( Decapoda : Axiidea : Callianassidae ) preserved within their burrows from the middle Miocene of the Central Paratethys
In situ preservation of mud shrimps of the family Callianassidae (Decapoda: Axiidea) has rarely been noted in the fossil record. The present contribution reports body fossils of four members of the
Comprehensive analysis and reinterpretation of Cenozoic mesofossils reveals ancient origin of the snapping claw of alpheid shrimps
The Cenozoic remains analysed here represent a compelling structural match with extant species of Alpheus and can now be confirmed for the Late Oligocene, providing a novel minimum age for the entire group as well as the first reliable calibration point for deep phylogenetic inferences.
