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…

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.

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 more

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.

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.
