A review of hydroid-associated pontoniine shrimp genus Rapipontonia Marin, 2007 is presented. The genus is characterized by a highly specific prehensile mechanism of the ambulatory pereiopods that allows clinging to their hosts. A new species is described from Vietnam and Indonesia distinguished from the most similar species, R. paragalene Marin, 2007, by longer rostrum, longer carpus of the minor second pereiopod in females and the number of unpaired spines on the distoventral margin of… 
Two new species of shrimp of the Indo-West Pacific genus Hamodactylus Holthuis, 1952 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Palaemonidae)
TLDR
To evaluate the status of the new species and their relationship within the genus Hamodactylus Holthuis, 1952, morphology and phylogenetic analyses based on the cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) mitochondrial gene are combined.
Two new species of shrimp of the Indo-West Pacifi c genus Hamodactylus Holthuis, 1952 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Palaemonidae)
TLDR
To evaluate the status of the new species and their relationship within the genus Hamodactylus Holthuis, 1952, morphology and phylogenetic analyses based on the cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) mitochondrial gene are combined.
Towards a revision of the genus Periclimenes: resurrection of Ancylocaris Schenkel, 1902, and designation of three new genera (Crustacea, Decapoda, Palaemonidae)
TLDR
The systematic position of several species of the polyphyletic genus Periclimenes is revised and the generic name Ancylocaris Schenkel, 1902 is re-established for the anemone-associated Peric Limenes brevicarpalis.
New records of caridean shrimps (Decapoda: Caridea) from shallow water along the northern Yucatan peninsula coasts of México
TLDR
The present study reports on recent collections of caridean shrimp in Yucatan, including Arrecife Alacranes and other reefs, as well as coastal lagoons and beaches, adding up to a total of 17 newly reported species for the East coast of Mexico.

TLDR
The record increase the number of trapezoid crabs known from Nhatrang Bay up to 22 with 10 species of the genus Trapezia that close to mostly diverse localities - Mollucca Islands and French Polynesia.
Insights into the morphology of symbiotic shrimp eyes (Crustacea, Decapoda, Palaemonidae); the effects of habitat demands
TLDR
Evolutionary pressures from their host environments are having an impact on the optical morphology of their eyes however, as indicated by host-hopping events there ecological adaptations occur post host invasion.
