A new species of the South American freshwater genus Euryrhynchus, E. tomasi sp. nov., is described on the basis of two specimens from French Guyana. The new species differs from all its congeners by the presence of two disto-lateral spines on the merus of the second pereiopod, combined with the absence of any carpal spines. The recent elevation of the euryrhynchids to family status is supported, whilst a discussion is presented of their systematic position and affinities, emphasising the… Expand

Let’s be pals again: major systematic changes in Palaemonidae (Crustacea: Decapoda)
Neither family in the shrimp families Gnathophyllidae and Hymenoceridae is valid, and all three supra-generic taxa are formally synonymised with Palaemonidae. Expand
Phylogeny of the Infraorder Caridea Based on Mitochondrial and Nuclear Genes (Crustacea: Decapoda)
The first comprehensive molecular phylogeny of the infraorder Caridea is presented, combining nuclear and mitochondrial gene sequences, to evaluate the relationships among 14 superfamilies and 30 families and suggests polyphyletic and paraphyletic relationships among genera within the families Atyidae, Pasiphaeidae, Oplophoridae, Hippolytidae, Gnathophyllidae, and Palaemonidae. Expand
Preliminary observations on the mandibles of palaemonoid shrimp (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea: Palaemonoidea)
The results of the study indicate that little phylogenetic information is conveyed by the structure of the mandible, but that its form is influenced by primary food sources of each species. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the superfamily Palaemonoidea (Crustacea : Decapoda : Caridea) based on mitochondrial and nuclear DNA reveals discrepancies with the current classification
A revision of Palaemonoidea and a re-evaluation of its constituent taxa appear to be necessary even though the systematic status of the subfamily Pontoniinae is still undetermined. Expand
On the Origin of Decapoda
Molecular phylogenetic trees for the closely related families Callianassidae and Ctenochelidae as well as for outgroup representatives of the family Axiidae are generated and support was found for continued recognition of many separate genera in this group and for the naming of additional ones. Expand
Comparative morphology of the pereiopod 1 carpo-propodal (P1-CP) antennal flagellar grooming brush in caridean shrimps (Crustacea, Decapoda)
It is evident that the P1-CP brush could be a phylogenetically informative character, which should be included in future cladistic analysis at generic level and above. Expand

Global diversity of shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea) in freshwater
With the exception of Antarctica, freshwater shrimp are present in all biogeographical regions, however, the Oriental region harbours the majority of species, whilst the Nearctic and western Palaearctic are very species-poor. Expand
The caridean shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda) of the Albatross Philippine Expedition 1907-1910, Part 6: Superfamily Palaemonoidea
Keys are offered to the families and subfamilies of the superfamily Palaemonoidea, to all recognized genera of the Pontoniinae, Gnathophyllidae, and to the Philippine-Indonesian species of Macrobrachium, periclimenaeus, and Periclimenes. Expand
Observations on the family Gnathophyllidae Dana, 1852 (Crustacea, Decapoda)
The adult and larval morphology indicate that the gnathophyllid shrimps are modified members of the Palaemonidae and should be included in that family, and a key to the revised subfamilies of the Paloemonidae incorporating these proposed changes is provided. Expand
A new superfamily classification of the Caridea (Crustacea: Pleocyemata) based on phylogenetic pattern
Principles of phylogenetic systematics are used to reconstruct 14 monophyletic subgroups of Caridea, based on 19 synaomorphies of adults, which are simpler, genealogically informative and more precisely diagnosed than previous schemes. Expand
