A new species of Neocallichirus, N. angelikae, from South Australia (Decapoda: Callianassidae)

  title={A new species of Neocallichirus, N. angelikae, from South Australia (Decapoda: Callianassidae)},
  author={Katsushi Sakai},
A new species, Neocallichirus angelikae, from a stony flat, at Ceduna, Murat Bay, South Australia, is described. Neocallichirus angelikae can be separated from the only other South Australian species N. limosa by the lengths of antennular and antennal peduncles, the forms of the chelipeds, the female Plpl, and the presence of anterolateral spines. Neocallichirus angelikae is morphologically closest to N. nickellae MANNING, 1993 from Tobago, Carribean.

A new species of the ghost shrimp genus Neocallichirus Sakai, 1988 (Decapoda: Axiidea: Callianassidae) from the southwestern Atlantic
A new species of ghost shrimp, Neocallichirus pinheiroi, is described based on specimens collected in subtidal habitats of Saquaira beach, northeastern coast of Brazil, and differs from it primarily in having a third maxilliped propodus expanded ventrally, and in the case of males, a large subtriangular tooth on the cutting edge of the major cheliped dactylus.
A new classification of Callianassidae and related families (Crustacea: Decapoda: Axiidea) derived from a molecular phylogeny with morphological support
The classification of the families and genera of Callianassidae and related families is significantly revised based on the results of a separately published molecular phylogeny with morphological support.

A new species, Callianassa poorei sp. nov. (Decapoda: Crustacea: Callianassidae) from Tasmania
Four small specimens from Tasmania, which include two ovigerous females, are closely allied to Callianassa kwtonae from the northern Great Barrier Reef, Queensland, Australia, and differ from that species because the merus of the chelipeds bears a triangular ventral lobe in the larger cheliped and a sharp ventral spine in the smallerCheliped.

Systematics and Distribution of Callianassa (Crustacea, Decapoda, Macrura) from Port Phillip Bay, Australia, with Descriptions of Two New Species
During the course of a large-scale survey of the soft-bottom benthic fauna of Port Phillip Bay, Victoria, C. ceramica and two new species were found to be common in deep water and distribution data derived from five O.l-m^ Smith-Mclntyre grab samples taken from each of 86 stations on a triangular grid across the bay was yielded.
The present volume relating to Crustacea and Echinodermata collected by Mr. Vanderbilt is full of interesting material, and among the Caridea there are many new species.
