Systema Brachyurorum: Part 1. An Annotated checklist of extant brachyuran crabs of the world
TLDR
The constitution of a large number of families and superfamilies is discussed in detail, with the positions of some taxa rearranged in an attempt to form a stable base for future taxonomic studies. Expand
The Magnitude of Global Marine Species Diversity
TLDR
The first register of the marine species of the world is compiled and it is estimated that between one-third and two-thirds of marine species may be undescribed, and previous estimates of there being well over one million marine species appear highly unlikely. Expand
A REVISION OF THE PORTUNUS PELAGICUS (LINNAEUS, 1758) SPECIES COMPLEX (CRUSTACEA: BRACHYURA: PORTUNIDAE), WITH THE RECOGNITION OF FOUR SPECIES
TLDR
Four distinct species of the commercially important swimming crab, Portunus pelagicus, are recognised based on morphological and DNA characters as well as biogeographical considerations and a key to the species is provided. Expand
A revision of the genus Pachygrapsus Randall, 1840 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura, Grapsidae), with special reference to the Southwest Pacific species
The genus Pachygrapsus Randall, 1840 is revised with particular attention to the five Southwest Pacific species: P. fakaravensis Rathbun, 1907, P. laevimanus Stimpson, 1858, P. minutus A.Expand
A revision of the shovel-nosed lobsters of the genus Thenus (Crustacea: Decapoda: Scyllaridae), with descriptions of three new species
TLDR
The shovel-nosed lobster genus Thenus Leach, 1815, long considered to contain only Thenus orientalis (Lund, 1793), is revised and five species recognised; a key using a combination of live colour patterns and morphometric ratios is presented as an aid to species discrimination. Expand
A new genus and species of marine crayfish, Palibythus magnificus, and new records of Palinurellus (Decapoda : Palinuridae) from the Pacific Ocean
TLDR
A new genus and species of marine crayfish, Palibythus magnificus, is described from deep water off Western Samoa and the Synaxidae is replaced in synonymy with the Palinuridae. Expand
A New Genus of Macrophthalmine Crab (Crustacea: Decapoda: Ocypodidae) from Eastern Australia
A new genus and species of macrophthalmine is described from eastern Australia. Enigmaplax is separable from Macrophthalmus by its exceptionally wide front and the pointed not spooned chelae.
Genetic evidence for the recognition of two fiddler crabs, Uca iranica and U. albimana (Crustacea: Brachyura: Ocypodidae), from the northwestern Indian Ocean, with notes on the U. lactea
The status of two poorly known fiddler crabs, Uca iranica Pretzmann, 1971, from the Persian Gulf, and U. albimana (Kossmann, 1877), from the Red Sea, was studied using two mitochondrial genes: theExpand
