Abstract Decapod crustaceans from the Ottnangian (middle Burdigalian, Lower Miocene) of the Western and Central Paratethys remain poorly known. In this study, we review and re-describe mud shrimps (Jaxea kuemeli), ghost shrimps (Gourretia sp., Calliax michelottii) and brachyuran crabs of the families Leucosiidae, Polybiidae and Portunidae. A dorsal carapace of the genus Calliax is reported for the first time in the fossil record. Re-examination of the type material of Randallia strouhali… 

A re-appraisal of the middle-late Miocene fossil decapod crustaceans of the ‘Faluns’ (Anjou-Touraine, France)

ABSTRACT The access to a new collection of decapod crustaceans collected from the middle-late Miocene ‘Faluns’, and examination of new specimens available, have allowed to expand the previous

An appraisal of the Middle-Late Miocene fossil decapod crustaceans of the ‘Faluns’ (Anjou-Touraine, France)

ABSTRACT A detailed report of the decapod crustaceans discovered in the Middle-Late Miocene outcrops of the ‘Faluns’ of Anjou-Touraine (West of France) is here presented. The Couffon's compendium

The results suggest that the circum-Mediterranean marine decapod taxa migrated in an easterly direction during the Oligocene and/or Miocene, establishing present-day decapod communities in the Indo-West Pacific.

An update of phylogenetic reconstructions, classification and morphological characters of extant Portunoidea Rafinesque, 1815 (Decapoda, Brachyura, Heterotremata), with a discussion of their relevance to fossil material

A review of recent results regarding the phylogeny of portunoid crabs, an update of their extant taxa classification and a reappraisal of important morphological characters that can be used for assessment of both fossil and contemporary species are presented.

A catalogue of the type and figured fossil decapod crustaceans in the collections of the Geological Survey of Austria in Vienna.

The present catalogue lists and figures the type and figured material of fossil decapod crustaceans housed in the collections of the Geological Survey of Austria in Vienna and chooses Lectotypes and paralectotypes for 11 species.



An early Miocene deep‐water decapod crustacean faunule from the Vienna Basin (Western Carpathians, Slovakia)

Palaeobiogeographical affinities of the described taxa suggest a trans‐Atlantic migration during the early Miocene, andPalaeoecological data suggest that deposition of the levels (Lakšárska Nová Ves Formation) took place under generally low‐energy, deep‐water conditions that were conducive to the preservation of delicate structures.

Calliaxina chalmasii (Brocchi, 1883) comb. nov. (Decapoda: Axiidea: Callianassidae: Eucalliacinae), a ghost shrimp from the Middle Miocene of Europe, with reappraisal of the fossil record of Eucalliacinae

It is argued that for the Eucalliacinae the following features are diagnostic: a square P1 manus usually converging distally, the presence of a ridge on the lateral surface at the base offixed finger, and a relatively short fixed finger, often with a triangular tooth.

An early Miocene deep‐water decapod crustacean faunule from the Slovenian part of the Styrian Basin, and its palaeoenvironmental and palaeobiogeographical significance

It is concluded that the exchange of decapod faunas between these regions was probably regulated by an anti‐estuarine circulation permitting an easier incursion of species from the Proto‐Mediterranean into the Paratethys and simultaneous hindering theParatethyan endemics (Styrioplax) from entering the Mediterranean.

Miocene and Pleistocene crabs (Crustacea, Decapoda) from Sabah and Sarawak

The material in the present collections contains species hitherto absent from the fossil record of Borneo sensu lato; the stratigraphical ranges of other species is extended.

Revision of Jaxea kuemeli Bachmayer, 1954 (Decapoda: Gebiidea: Laomediidae) from the Miocene of Europe, with remarks on the palaeobiogeography of the genus Jaxea Nardo, 1847

The present contribution reevaluates the fossil record of the genus Jaxea (Decapoda: Ge-biidea: Laomediidae) and gives an emended diagnosis and an updated description of Jaxea kuemeli based on well

The fossil record of Glypturus Stimpson, 1866 (Crustacea, Decapoda, Axiidea, Callianassidae) revisited, with notes on palaeoecology and palaeobiogeography

It is argued that Glypturus is of Tethyan origin, with a stratigraphi- cal range going as far back as the Eocene, and is considered to be linked with tropical to subtropical, nearshore carbonate environments of normal salinity.

Brachyuran and anomuran fauna from the Cenozoic of Piedmont (NW Italy)

The discovery of decapod crustaceans from the Cenozoic of the Piedmont Region (NW Italy) was until now limited to reports by A. Sismonda and Larghi, but the recent discovery of brachyurans and anomurans from some localities in Novara, Asti, Alessandria and Biella provinces increases the carcinologic knowledge in Italy.

Upper Cretaceous Crustacea from Mexico and Colombia: similar faunas and environments during Turonian times

Nine taxa represent the crustacean component of the Turonian fauna from the Eagle Ford Group limestones and marls that crop out in several quarries, northwest of Muzquiz, Coahuila, Mexico. Three

Deep-water fossorial shrimps from the Oligocene Kiscell Clay of Hungary: Taxonomy and palaeoecology

Deep-water ghost shrimp assemblages from the otherwise well known Oligocene Kiscell Clay in Hungary suggest different ecological requirements for at least some populations of this genus in the geological past, as seen in many taxa.
