Fossils of the terrestrial crab, Geothelphusa tenuimanus , are described. These fossils were collected from clay within the e ssures that rift the limestone of the Middle Pleistocene Ryukyu Formation on Okinawa Island, Ryukyu Islands. The geological age of the fossil G. tenuimanus was estimated as Late Pleistocene, because they occurred in association with a fossil deer ( Cervus sp.), which is already extinct on Okinawa Island. This is the e rst fossil record of a true freshwater crab from the… Expand
A fossil freshwater crab from the Pliocene Tatrot Formation (Siwalik Group) in Northern India (Crustacea, Brachyura, Potamidae)
Abstract We describe a fossil freshwater crab specimen from the Tatrot Formation, Siwalik Group, of Northern India. We assign this specimen on the basis of morphology of the anterolateral margin,Expand
Late Pleistocene-Holocene amphibians from Okinawajima Island in the Ryukyu Archipelago, Japan: Reconfirmed faunal endemicity and the Holocene range collapse of forest-dwelling species
Amphibian fossils excavated from two Late Pleistocene-Holocene fissures in the southern part of Okinawajima Island in the Ryukyu Archipelago were identified through detailed comparisons with skeletalExpand

Synopsis of the fossil freshwater crabs of Europe (Brachyura: Potamoidea: Potamidae)
TLDR
A slow southward withdrawal of freshwater crabs, induced by climate cooling at the end of the Miocene, is marked by the extinction of P. hegauense in the circum-Alpine realm, P. antiquum in Hungary, and probably P. castellinense in Italy. Expand
Intraspecific genetic diversity of the endemic freshwater crab Candidiopotamon rathbunae (Decapoda, Brachyura, Potamidae) reflects five million years of the geological history of Taiwan
TLDR
The ancestral Candidiopotamon rathbunae was among the earliest non-marine colonizers of Taiwan, settling on this island no later than the early Pliocene, according to the molecular results. Expand
Taxonomy of the Terrestrial Crab Geothelphusa tenuimanus (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura: Potamidae) of Okinawa Island, Central Ryukyus, Japan
The Okinawan terrestrial crab Geothelphusa tenuimanus is redescribed and its intraspecific variation is discussed. The geographically isolated Tamagusuku (� southern) population tends to have a moreExpand
EVIDENCE OF THE EARLIEST FRESHWATER DECAPOD FOSSIL FROM SOUTHEAST ASIA (CRUSTACEA: DECAPODA: BRACHYURA)
TLDR
Sedimentological and palaeontological data indicate the former existence of alternating swampy and lacustrine environments, inhabited by the crab and a low-diversity gastropod fauna. Expand
Phylogeography of the mitten crab Eriocheir sensu stricto in East Asia: Pleistocene isolation, population expansion and secondary contact.
TLDR
The impact of Pleistocene glacial cycles on geographical distribution and genetic structure of the mitten crab Eriocheir sensu stricto in East Asia is examined using sequence variation of mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase I and cy tochrome b gene segments to provide insights into the evolutionary history and mechanism for generating biodiversity in EastAsia.

A revision of the Geothelphusa levicervix species group (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura: Potamidae), with descriptions of three new species
TLDR
Five species in the Geothelphusa levicervix species‐group of freshwater crabs (Potamidae), distributed on five islands in the Ryukyus, Japan, are recognized, three of which are here described as new, and each of which is restricted to its own island. Expand
