A Classification of Living and Fossil Genera of Decapod Crustaceans
This compilation is the first comprehensive estimate of taxonomic diversity within the entire Decapoda, listing all known families and genera organized by higher taxonomic groups and including estimates of the number of species in every genus.
Systematic List of Fossil Decapod Crustacean Species
This chapter discusses the classification of the fossil decapod crustaceans and some of the conventions employed within the text.
A comprehensive and integrative reconstruction of evolutionary history for Anomura (Crustacea: Decapoda)
This work reconstructs the evolutionary history—phylogeny, divergence times, character evolution and diversification— of this speciose clade of Anomura, and suggests that the acquisition of a crab-like form did not act as a key innovation.

The hypotheses that the break‐up of Gondwana has led to a predominately east–west or a southern pattern for parastacid crayfish are tested and the evidence for a complete drowning of New Zealand and subsequent colonization by freshwater cray fish is examined.
REVISION OF PORTUNOIDEA RAFINESQUE, 1815 (DECAPODA: BRACHYURA) WITH EMPHASIS ON THE FOSSIL GENERA AND FAMILIES
The analyses indicate that the superfamily Portunoidea is much more diverse at the family level than has previously been recognized, and three subfamilies are elevated to family status.
A new Classification for some Jurassic Brachyura (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura: Homolodromioidea): families GoniodromitidaeBeurlen, 1932 and Tanidromitidae new family
A new family, Tanidromitidae, and two new genera are erected to embrace several Jurassic species of brachyurans from northern Europe, based upon their possession of a unique combination of orbital and dorsal carapace characters.
Decapod crustaceans from the Pflugerville Member, Austin Formation (Late Cretaceous; Campanian) of Texas

This study estimated phylogenetic relationships among the major groups of all lobster families and 94% of the genera using six genes (mitochondrial and nuclear) and 195 morphological characters across 173 species of lobsters for the most comprehensive sampling to date.
