A Classification of Living and Fossil Genera of Decapod Crustaceans
TLDR
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.
The Magnitude of Global Marine Species Diversity
Evolutionary history of true crabs (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura) and the origin of freshwater crabs.
TLDR
This work reconstructs the most comprehensive phylogeny of Brachyura to date using sequence data of six nuclear protein-coding genes and two mitochondrial rRNA genes from more than 140 species belonging to 58 families, and confirms that the "Podotremata," are paraphyletic.
Atyid Shrimps (Decapoda: Caridea) of Taiwan, with Descriptions of Three New Species
ABSTRACT Three genera and 13 species of the family Atyidae are reported from Taiwan. Among them, 5 species are new records from Taiwan and 3 are new to science. Most of the species are found in the
The emergence of lobsters: phylogenetic relationships, morphological evolution and divergence time comparisons of an ancient group (decapoda: achelata, astacidea, glypheidea, polychelida).
TLDR
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.
Phylogeny of Thalassinidea (Crustacea, Decapoda) inferred from three rDNA sequences: implications for morphological evolution and superfamily classification
TLDR
The results do not support the generally used classification scheme of Thalassinidea and suggest that the infraorder might be divided into two superfamilies instead of three as suggested based on larval morphology, second pereiopod morphology in adults and gastric mill structure.

TLDR
A checklist of the currently recognized six families, 55 genera and 248 species (with four subspecies) of living marine lobsters is provided, together with their synonyms in recent literature and information on the type locality of the valid taxa.
Hermit to king, or hermit to all: multiple transitions to crab-like forms from hermit crab ancestors.
TLDR
It is shown by phylogenetic analysis of five nuclear protein-coding gene sequences that hermit crabs have a single origin, but surprisingly, that almost all other major clades and body forms within the Anomura, are derived from within the hermit crab.
