Smithsonian Contributions to Zoology, number 244, 183 pages, 70 figures, 1 table, 1977.—Eight families comprising 18 genera and 55 species and subspecies of troglobitic and anchialine decapod crustaceans are recorded from the Americas. The family Atyidae is represented by two genera: Palaemonias, with two species occurring in the United States, and Typhlatya… 

Procambarus (Ortmannicus) leitheuseri, new species, another troglobitic crayfish (Decapoda: Cambaridae) from Peninsular Florida

A new troglobitic crayfish, Procambarus (Ortmannicus) leitheuseri, is described f rom six localities in Hernando and Pasco counties, Florida, and is pleased to name for its discoverer Arthur T. Leitheuser, who has added much to the authors' knowledge of the distribution of the trogalobites of Florida.

A review of the Grapsid crab genus Sesarma (Crustacea: Decapoda: Grapsidae) in America, with the description of a new genus

The genus Sesarma is here restricted to the Americas, and the following species are assigned to this genus: reticulatum (the type species), crassipes, curacaoense, rectum, bidentatum, jarvisi, cookei, verleyi, aequatoriale, sulcatum, rhizophorae, and rubinofforum.

A New Species Of Troglobitic Crayfish Of The Genus Cambarus, Subgenus Aviticambarus (Decapoda : Cambaridae), Endemic To White Spring Cave, Alabama

The new species differs from the other Aviticambarus in the relationships of the terminal elements of the gonopod; the shape of the abdominal pleura; the lack of spines or prominent tubercles on the mesial surface of the carpus; the attenuated podomeres of the pereiopods; the morphology of the epistome; and the structure of the annulus ventralis of the female.

Class Malacostraca, Order Decapoda

Taxonomy of the freshwater crabs of Costa Rica, with a revision of the genus Ptychophallus Smalley, 1964 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Pseudothelphusidae).

The taxonomy and geographic distribution of the freshwater crabs of the family Pseudothelphusidae Ortmann, 1893, of Costa Rica, Central America, particularly of the genus Ptychophallus Smalley, 1964, are revised and the gonopod morphology of all species is redescribed and illustrated, and maps of their geographic distribution are furnished.

NEW SPECIES OF TROGLOBITIC SHRIMPS FROM MEXICO, WITH THE DESCRIPTION OF TROGLOMEXICANUS, NEW GENUS (DECAPODA: PALAEMONIDAE)

A new genus of cavernicolous fresh-water palaemonid shrimp, Troglomexicanus, and two new species, 7: tarnaulipasensis and 7: huastecae, are described from El Abra limestone caves in the states of San

MACROBRACHIUM (DECAPODA: CARIDEA: PALAEMONIDAE) IN THE CONTIGUOUS UNITED STATES: A REVIEW OF THE SPECIES AND AN ASSESSMENT OF THREATS TO THEIR SURVIVAL

Preliminary data from Mississippi and Texas support the notion that populations of river shrimps are restricted by impoundments, and populations, in these states, are vulnerable to anthropogenic disturbances such as construction of impoundsments, water pollution, commercial fishing, and introductions of exotic species.

First record of a cavernicolous atyid decapod Crustacean in the Iberian Peninsul, new perspectives on the evolution of the genus Typhlatya miravetensis n.sp.

A new model based on vicariance principles that involves further evolution of each species after the disruption of the ancestral range is developed, which allows new estimations for the age and evolution of the genus Typhlatya.

Many, if not the majority, of the troglobites appear to have arisen independently from epigean progenitors rather than sharing common subterranean precursors.

The Crayfishes of Georgia

A diagnosis of the species in Georgia, descriptions of new and several previously described species, statements concerning location of types, type-locality, range, specimens examined, variations, ecological and life history data, and a list of crayfish associates are presented.
