DNA barcoding of stygobiotic shrimps of the genus Xiphocaridinella Sadowsky, 1930 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Atyidae) collected in underground streams flowing inside two neighboring large karst caves (Otap and Abrskil сaves) revealed the presence of two distinct genetic lineages representing the first case of species co-occurrence in the Western Caucasus. The paper presents the complete morphological re-description of stygobiotic atyid shrimp Xiphocaridinella ablaskiri (Birštein, 1939) and the… 
Molecular genetic analysis of stygobiotic shrimps of the genus Xiphocaridinella (Crustacea: Decapoda: Atyidae) reveals a connection between distant caves in Central Abkhazia, southwestern Caucasus
TLDR
A hydrogeological connection of a number of distant caves in Central Abkhazia of the southwestern Caucasus is satisfied, which indicates the possibility of using biospeleological studies in some cases to identify karst hydrosystems together with traditional Hydrogeological methods.
A new species of stygobiotic atyid shrimps of the genus Xiphocaridinella (Crustacea: Decapoda: Atyidae) from the Racha-Lechkhumi and Kvemo Svaneti, with a new record of X. kumistavi from the Imereti, Western Georgia, Caucasus
TLDR
The genus Xiphocaridinella in the Colchis Valley of the SW Caucasus now encompasses 15 species, with a new species of stygobiotic shrimps recorded from the southern part of the Racha-Lechkhumi and Kvemo Svaneti Region.
On the taxonomic identity of the representatives of the brachyuran genus Pilumnus Leach, 1816 (Decapoda: Brachyura: Pilumnidae) occurring along the Russian coasts of the Black Sea
TLDR
Investigations and inventory of decapod fauna in the Azov – Black Sea basin have been carried out since the XVIII century and presently consists of 28 marine species with valid names, including a widespread representative of the brachyuran genus Pilumnus Leach, 1816 occurring along the Russian coasts of the Black Sea.
Crustacean “cave fishes” from the Arabika karst massif (Abkhazia, Western Caucasus): new species of stygobiotic crustacean genera Xiphocaridinella and Niphargus from the Gegskaya Cave and adjacent area
TLDR
Stygobiotic animals washed from various groundwater sources from the Arabika karst massif (Abkhazia, Western Caucasus) were studied and new species of stygobiotic crustacean genera Xiphocaridinella and Niphargus were described based on DNA (COI mtDNA gene marker) and morphological studies in the Gegskaya (Gega) Cave.
