Ultrastructure of spermatozoa of spider crabs, family Mithracidae (Crustacea, Decapoda, Brachyura): Integrative analyses based on morphological and molecular data
TLDR
The spermiotaxonomy of these species of Mithracidae represent a novel set of data that corroborates the most recent taxonomic revision of the family and can be used in future taxonomic and phylogenetic studies within this family. Expand
Longevity and fecundity of four species of Anastrepha (Diptera: Tephritidae)
TLDR
The differences observed in the survival patterns and egg production and oviposition in the Anastrepha species reflect strategies that may be associated with environmental stability and/or differential response capacity to unstable environments. Expand
REPRODUCTIVE ASPECTS OF THE SHRIMP CUAPETES AMERICANUS (KINGSLEY, 1878) (CARIDEA, PALAEMONIDAE) FROM BOCAS DEL TORO, PANAMA
TLDR
A decrease in relative reproductive output was observed with the increase of female size, indicating that larger females were investing proportionally less energy in reproduction than smaller ones, when measured in relation to the body size, but this correlation also lacked significance. Expand
Gonadosomatic and Hepatosomatic indexes of the freshwater shrimp Macrobrachium olfersii (Decapoda, Palaemonidae) from São Sebastião Island, Southeastern Brazil
Macrobrachium olfersii is widely known in the western Atlantic coastal region. However, no studies were found relating the variation of energy reserves of the hepatopancreas during the gonads'Expand
Taxonomic revision of the speckled crabs, genus Arenaeus Dana, 1851 (Brachyura: Portunidae) based on morphological and molecular data.
TLDR
Light is shed on the status of the genus Arenaeus and its members, some taxonomical issues are clarified, some morphological analyses may indicate a closer relationship among particular groups of portunids and Arenaeus, and an identification key is provided for the species. Expand
DNA sequence database as a tool to identify decapod crustaceans on the São Paulo coastline
TLDR
The aim of this study is to obtain sequences of the mitochondrial markers (COI and 16S) for decapod crustaceans distributed at the São Paulo coastline and to test the accuracy of these markers for species identification from this region by comparing the authors' sequences to those already present in the GenBank database.

Integrative Taxonomic Study of the Purse Crab Genus Persephona Leach, 1817 (Brachyura: Leucosiidae): Combining Morphology and Molecular Data
TLDR
Eight species of Persephona are considered valid, and the reported distribution for P. crinita is restricted, while P. aquilonaris and P. mediterranea are found to represent separate species. Expand
Checklist of decapod crustaceans from the coast of the São Paulo state (Brazil) supported by integrative molecular and morphological data: III. Infraorder Brachyura Latreille, 1802.
TLDR
The brachyuran diversity on the coast of São Paulo in 168 species is estimated, based on the refined compilation, which might flag species that deserve further investigations and concerns. Expand
[Performance of Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann) (Diptera: Tephritidae) in fruits: comparison of two laboratory populations].
TLDR
This study evaluated the influence of two fruits hosts (orange and papaya) on biological and behavioral parameters of two populations of Ceratitis capitata reared under laboratory conditions, finding the best performance of immatures of both populations was obtained on papaya as a host. Expand
Larval stages of the crab Mithrax tortugae (Brachyura: Mithracidae) with comparisons between all species of Mithrax
TLDR
The analyses of larval morphology and the results of the molecular analyses reinforced recognition of the relationships among M. tortugae, M. hispidus and M. pleuracanthus. Expand
