Two species of the callianassid ghost shrimp genus Neocallichirus Sakai, 1988 are newly recorded from Iran. Neocallichirus darvishi n. sp. appears close to N. jousseaumei (Nobili, 1904), but combined morphological and genetic analyses provide evidence for recognition of the new taxon. Neocallichirus manningi Kazmi Kazmi, 1992, originally described from Pakistan, is reported for the first time since its original description. A supplemental description and figures are given for N. manningi. 
First record of the callianassid ghost shrimp Neocallichirus jousseaumei (Nobili, 1904) (Decapoda: Axiidea) from India
TLDR
A single specimen of the callianassid ghost shrimp genus Neocallichirus jousseaumei is first recorded from India based on a single specimen collected from intertidal zone of Diu coast.
A new species of the ghost shrimp genus Neocallichirus Sakai, 1988 (Decapoda: Axiidea: Callianassidae) from the southwestern Atlantic
TLDR
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.
Update on the burrowing shrimps (Axiidea and Gebiidea) of the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman, Iran including first finding of Corallianassa martensi (Miers, 1884) in Iranian waters
TLDR
An annotated checklist of the extant burrowing shrimps of southern waters of Iran is presented and Corallianassa martensi (Miers, 1884) is recorded for the first time across the Iranian coast.
A new classification of Callianassidae and related families (Crustacea: Decapoda: Axiidea) derived from a molecular phylogeny with morphological support
TLDR
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 molecular phylogeny of Callianassidae and related families (Crustacea : Decapoda : Axiidea) with morphological support
TLDR
It is concluded that discrepancies between molecular and morphological analyses are due at least in part to missing sequences for key species, but no less to the inability to recognise unambiguously informative morphological synapomorphies.
Associations between the pink wormfish, Microdesmus longipinnis (Weymouth), and the ghost shrimp, Lepidophthalmus louisianensis (Schmitt), in artificial burrows
TLDR
It is demonstrated that M. longipinnis positively associated with male L. louisianensis when compared to empty burrows supporting the idea of a more complex relationship that has previously been reported in the literature.
Detection and phylogenetic analysis of Sarcocystis moulei and Sarcocystis spp. (Sarcocystidae: Apicomplexa) from slaughtered sheep in southwest Iran
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of Sarcocystis species isolated from sheep slaughtered in southwest Iran using 18 S rRNA gene could be helpful in identifying the new species of the Sarcocrystis.
