ANNOTATED CHECKLIST OF ANOMURAN DECAPOD CRUSTACEANS OF THE WORLD (EXCLUSIVE OF THE KIWAOIDEA AND FAMILIES CHIROSTYLIDAE AND GALATHEIDAE OF THE GALATHEOIDEA) PART II - PORCELLANIDAE
Annotated checklists of the world's Recent anomuran crustacean superfamilies Aegloidesa, Hippoidea, Porcellanidae and the crab-like Lithodoidea and Lomisoidea are presented and a collection of photographs depicting the variety exhibited by members of these taxa is enhanced.
Larval development of four Petrolisthes species (Decapoda: Anomura: Porcellanidae) under laboratory conditions, with comments on the larvae of the genus

DNA barcoding of hermit crabs of genus Clibanarius Dana, 1852 (Anomura: Diogenidae) in the Ryukyu Islands, southwestern Japan
Partial sequences of the cytochrome oxidase I (COI) gene of 11 Clibanarius species commonly found in the intertidal zones of the Ryukyu Archipelago, southwestern Japan are determined and can be used as nametags to distinguish each of the 11 species.
Porcellanidae (Crustacea: Decapoda: Anomura) from New Caledonia and the Loyalty Islands
- M. Osawa
- 13 August 2007
Thirty-one species of the family Porcellanidae are reported on the basis of rich material recently collected from New Caledonia and the Loyalty Islands, some of which greatly extend the previously known distribution ranges of their species.
COMPLETE LARVAL DEVELOPMENT OF PETROLISTHES UNILOBATUS REARED UNDER LABORATORY CONDITIONS (DECAPODA: ANOMURA: PORCELLANIDAE)
Zoeal characters of this species most closely agree with those of Group 1 identified by Osawa (1995), but differ from this group by having only a single short plumose seta on the posteromedian margin of the telson in second zoea.
Species of Galacantha and Munidopsis (Crustacea: Decapoda: Anomura: Galatheidae) from the deep-waters off Taiwan, with the description of two new species
Altogether 31 species of Munidopsis are now recorded from Taiwan, indicating a particularly rich deep-sea fauna of the island.
Enosteoides Johnson, 1970 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Anomura: Porcellanidae) from the Central Philippines, with description of a new species of the genus
- M. Osawa
Three species of the porcellanid genus Enosteoides Johnson, 1970, including a new species, are reported from the Central Philippines on the basis of material mainly collected by the PANGLAO Marine…
A New Genus and Two New Species of Peltogastridae (Crustacea: Cirripedia: Rhizocephala) Parasitizing Hermit Crabs from Okinawa Island (Ryukyu Archipelago, Japan), and their DNA-barcodes
A new genus and two new species of Peltogastridae are described from Okinawa Island, Ryukyu Islands, southwestern Japan, and the two new rhizocephalans were found to be parasitic on the estuarine hermit crabs.
Complete larval development of the rare porcellanid crab, Novorostrum decorocrus Osawa, 1998 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Anomura: Porcellanidae), reared under laboratory conditions
The complete larval development of Novorostrum decorocrus Osawa, 1998, is described and illustrated on the basis of laboratory‐reared material and suggests that this rare porcellanid is more widely distributed than currently known.
