Pleistocene speciation of freshwater crabs (Crustacea: Potamidae: Geothelphusa) from northern Taiwan and southern Ryukyus, as revealed by phylogenetic relationships
TLDR
The results support the hypothesis that speciation of Geothelphusa among these islands was the result of cyclic glaciations and interglaciations during the Pleistocene, and four clades of freshwater crabs are present in the Fushan Botanical Garden, located in the mountainous area of north-eastern Taiwan.

Atyid shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea) of the Ryukyu Islands, southern Japan, with descriptions of two new species
TLDR
The freshwater atyid shrimps of Ryukyu Islands, southern Japan, are documented and discussed, and two new species are described and illustrated in detail. Expand
COMPLETE LARVAL DEVELOPMENT OF PETROLISTHES UNILOBATUS REARED UNDER LABORATORY CONDITIONS (DECAPODA: ANOMURA: PORCELLANIDAE)
TLDR
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. Expand
ON THE SPECIES OF JAPANESE ATYID SHRIMPS (DECAPODA: CARIDEA) DESCRIBED BY WILLIAM STIMPSON (1860)
TLDR
The taxonomic status of the six Japanese species of Caridina described by W. Stimpson (1860) is clarified on the basis of fresh specimens from the type localities, and neotypes for the six species are designated to stabilize their taxonomy. Expand
New Records of Four Grapsoid Crabs (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura) from Japan, with Notes on Four Rare Species
Four species of semiterrestrial grapsoid crabs are recorded from Japanese waters for the first time based on material from the Ryukyu Islands. These are: Pachygrapsus planifrons De Man, 1888Expand
LARVAL DEVELOPMENT OF THE MANGROVE SESARMID CRAB NEOSARMATIUM INDICUM (BRACHYURA: GRAPSOIDEA) DESCRIBED FROM LABORATORY-REARED MATERIAL
Abstract The larvae of the mangrove sesarmid crab Neosarmatium indicum (A. Milne-Edwards, 1868), were reared in the laboratory. Five zoeal stages and one megalopa are described in detail andExpand
Larval development of a mangrove crab (Perisesarma bidens De Haan) (Crustacea: Brachyura: Sesarminae)
Larval development of Perisesarma bidens (De Haan) was investigated in laboratory conditions. Morphology of all larval stages and 1st crab stage was described and illustrated in detail, and comparedExpand
The complete larval development of Sadayoshia edwardsii (37) (Decapoda: Anomura: Galatheidae) described from laboratory‐reared material
TLDR
The present larval study suggests that Sadayoshia is more closely allied to Galathea than to Munida and these are compared with other galatheid genera for which the larval morphology is known. Expand
A FIRST FOSSIL RECORD OF THE TERRESTRIAL CRAB, GEOTHELPHUSA TENUIMANUS (MIYAKE & MINEI, 1965) (DECAPODA, BRACHYURA, POTAMIDAE) FROM OKINAWA ISLAND, CENTRAL RYUKYUS, JAPAN
TLDR
Fossils of the terrestrial crab, Geothelphusa tenuimanus, are described, which are the first fossil record of a true freshwater crab from the Ryukyu Islands and contain higher numbers of strongly curved movable e ngers than found in extant specimens. Expand
