Plankton-Caught Zoeal Stages and Megalopa of the Lobster Shrimp Axius serratus (Decapoda: Axiidae) from the Bay of Fundy, Canada, With A Summary of Axiidean and Gebiidean Literature on Larval
Wild-caught larvae, attributed to the lobster shrimp Axius serratus, consisting of two zoeal stages and a decapodid (megalopa), are described in detail and difficulties in delineating the family based on larvae persist. Expand
Larval development of Notolopas brasiliensis Miers, 1886 (Brachyura: Majoidea: Pisidae) described from laboratory reared material and a reappraisal of the characters of Pisidae
It was showed that only a combination of characters could differentiate Notolopas from other pisid genera, and there are no common sets of larval characters that would define Pisidae nowadays. Expand
Larval development of the spider crab Menaethius monoceros (Latreille, 1825), (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura: Epialtidae)
No single morphological feature, or set of features, is apparent that characterizes epialtine larvae, and Comparative analysis revealed that some of the previous descriptions are probably not those of Menaethius monoceros. Expand
On the morphological differentiation between Libinia spinosa and L. ferreirae (Crustacea: Brachyura: Majoidea: Epialtidae)
It is shown herein that unequivocal identification can be easily achieved based on features of the male and female thoracic sternum, pereiopod dactyli, and infraorbital notch. Expand
Zoeal stages and megalopa of Mithrax hispidus (Herbst, 1790) (Decapoda: Brachyura: Majoidea: Mithracidae): a reappraisal of larval characters from laboratory cultured material and a review of larvae
Larval evidence supports the recently suggested adult-based synonymization of M. caribbaeus with M. hispidus and shows the importance of precisely recording morphological details such as setation, which may otherwise lead to incorrect interpretations with regard to perceived taxonomic affinities.

Checklist of fossil decapod crustaceans from tropical America. Part I: Anomura and Brachyura
A detailed, up-to-date, and revised checklist for every marine, terrestrial, or freshwater fossil decapod crustacean occurrence from tropical America known to us, including their age, geographic occurrences, and related literature is presented. Expand
Larval morphology of the spider crab Leurocyclus tuberculosus (Decapoda: Majoidea: Inachoididae)
The larval morphology of L. tuberculosus conforms to the general pattern found in Majoidea by having two zoeal stages, in which the first stage has nine or more seta on the scaphognatite of the maxilla, and the second zoeal stage present well developed pleopods. Expand
Refining the genus Rochinia A. Milne-Edwards, 1875: reinstatement of Scyramathia A. Milne-Edwards, 1880 and Anamathia Smith, 1885, and a new genus for Amathia crassa A. Milne-Edwards, 1879, with
The genus Scyramathia A. Milne-Edwards, 1880 (type species Amathia carpenteri Norman in Wyville Thomson, 1873) is herein removed from the synonymy of Rochinia A. gracilipes and a new genus, Minyorhyncha, is established forAmathia crassa A. milne- edwards, 1879, a species previously placed in the genus R Cochinia. Expand
Until now only six species of lithodids have been found occasionally in the Brazilian coast. Most king crabs are accidentally caught during fisheries targeting other species. Herein we report newExpand
Larval development of Apiomithrax violaceus (A. Milne Edwards, 1868) (Decapoda: Brachyura: Majoidea: Pisidae) reared in laboratory conditions, and a review of larval characters of Pisidae
A review of larvae of 28 species among 14 genera indicated that there is no apparent single larval character that differentiates the Pisidae, with more limited phylogenetic analyses suggesting that this is a paraphyletic group. Expand
