  author={H. Schminke},
Agnathobathynella ecclesi gen. n., sp. n. is described from interstitial waters of a stream in Malawi (Africa). There are several unique features characterizing the new genus: mandibles without cutting part, paragnaths extremely elongated, teeth and setae of the maxillula and also the maxilla specialized in various ways, 8th male thoracopod without penis, thoracopods 1 to 7 with 3-segmented endopodites and very reduced setation. Probable relationships between the new genus and Nannobathynella… 
The new species is the fifth species of Bathynellidae described from the tropics and is equipped with strong musculature, and there is a joint between them allowing a backward swing of the terminal part of the palp.
Indobathynella prehensilis n. gen., n. sp., an Aberrant Species of Bathynellacea (Eumalacostraca) from India
ABSTRACT A new bathynellacean, Indobathynella prehensilis n. gen., n. sp., is described from farm bores in southeastern India. This is an aberrant species, possessing such a unique combination of
New Parabathynellidae species in Africa: the first bathynellids from Chad and an assay of their phylogenetic position in the order Bathynellacea (Crustacea: Malacostraca) based on 18S sequences
Phylogenetic reconstruction of the Parabathynellidae family shows how the new African species remain clearly separated from European and Australian genus groups.
Camachobathynella meghalayaensisn. gen., n. sp., the first Palearctic element of Bathynellacea (Eumalacostraca: Bathynellidae) from northeastern India
Of these characters, the male Th VIII lacking endopod and the caudal furca having only four spines can be considered the autapomorphies of the new genus within in the subfamily Bathynellinae.
Anaspidacea, Bathynellacea (Crustacea, Syncarida), generalised tracks, and the biogeographical relationships of South America
It is concluded that the biotic origin of the South American Syncarida is complex, implying the existence of at least two ancestral biotas.
Early Crustacean Evolution and the Appearance of Epipodites and Gills
The recently discovered Yicaris dianensis from the Lower Cambrian demonstrates not only the presence but also the morphogenesis of three epipodites on all post-maxillulary appendages, and may be a valuable model for understanding the evolutionary origin of epipadites.
