The Neogene decapod crustaceans are reviewed from Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao, Anguilla, Barbados, Carriacou, Costa Rica, Cuba, Florida, Hispaniola (Haiti and Dominican Republic), Jamaica, Mexico, Panama, Puerto Rico, St. Kitts, Tintamare Island, Trinidad and Venezuela. The most widely distributed taxa, both stratigraphically and geographically, are callianassids and Calappa (both with easily identifiable dactyli), and portunids. The latter include eleven genera in the study area; of these…

An early Miocene deep‐water decapod crustacean faunule from the Vienna Basin (Western Carpathians, Slovakia)
TLDR
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.
A new species of land crab, Sesarma Say, 1817 (Decapoda, Brachyura), from the Pleistocene of Jamaica
Terrestrial arthropods are poorly known from the Cenozoic of Jamaica. A probably Late Pleistocene land crab, Sesarma primigenium sp. nov., is described from the Western Cement Company Cave, parish of
Pleistocene decapod crustaceans of eastern Jamaica
TLDR
Three species of decapod crustaceans (crabs) that are either new or imperfectly known as fossils are described from two Pleistocene formations in eastern Jamaica, including the hermit crab Dardanus portmorantensis sp.
Fossil Crustacea of the Late Pleistocene Port Morant Formation, west Port Morant Harbour, southeastern Jamaica
TLDR
Of the 17 species of decapod, only four, sparsely represented, are also common to southeast Port Morant Harbour, where they are relatively common; two species are known from other deposits in Jamaica; two from other Caribbean islands; and eight are Recent species new to the fossil record of the Caribbean.
A palaeoecological review of the lower Gatun Formation (Miocene) of Panama with special emphasis on trophic relationships
A thorough literature review in combination with an analysis of fossil material from collections enables a detailed reconstruction of the ecosystem of the lower Gatun Formation (Serravallian to
Fossil hermit and land crabs (Decapoda: Anomura, Brachyura) from the Quaternary of Antigua and Bermuda
  • J. Luque
  • Geography, Environmental Science
  • 2017
TLDR
The remains of Cardisoma and presumably Gecarcinus from the late Pleistocene of Bermuda represent the first record of fossil crustaceans from the island, and one of the only fossil records of the genera known to date, whereas the fossil hermit crab remains from the Holocene of Antigua represent the second record of Fossil Coenobita worldwide.
Cenozoic Crustaceans of the East and West Indies
TLDR
This is an issue of Scripta Geologica from the Nationaal Naturhistorisch Museum, Leiden around a single theme concerning Cenozoic crustaceans edited by Stephen Donovan and offers a useful country-bycountry catalog of what is currently known.
PRESERVATION POTENTIAL OF GECARCINID LAND CRABS (DECAPODA, BRACHYURA, GECARCINIDAE) FROM SAN SALVADOR
TLDR
The discovery of eight poorly preserved Holocene chelae on San Salvador Island contrasts starkly with the abundance and preservational quality of surficial remains, suggesting that the fossil record of land crabs may be biased as a result of their low preservation potential in terrestrial environments.
The fossil record of Glypturus Stimpson, 1866 (Crustacea, Decapoda, Axiidea, Callianassidae) revisited, with notes on palaeoecology and palaeobiogeography
TLDR
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.
Ghost shrimps (Decapoda: Axiidea: Callianassidae) of the Maastrichtian (Late Cretaceous) Ocozocoautla Formation, Chiapas (Mexico)
TLDR
It is postulated that virtually all major ghost shrimp clades were already established well before the Cenozoic and the conservative body plan of ctenochelid and callianassid taxa is emphasized.

OLIGOCENE AND MIOCENE DECAPODS (THALASSINIDEA AND BRACHYURA) FROM THE CARIBBEAN
TLDR
Most of the Caribbean taxa reported herein belong to tropical or subtropical extant genera that inhabit both carbonate and siliciclastic, soft, shallow marine substrates, supported by the occurrence of most of the fossils in clastic units.
Description Of The Ghost Shrimp Sergio-Mericeae, A New Species From South Florida, With Reexamination Of S-Guassutinga (Crustacea, Decapoda, Callianassidae)
TLDR
This new species, formerly identified with the Brazilian species, Sergio guassutinga (until recently assigned to Neocallichirus), bears a strong resemblance to its Brazilian counterpart in body size, the unique dactylar dentition of the major chela, and most other morphological features.
NEW EOCENE DECAPODS ( THALASSINIDEA AND BRACHYURA ) FROM SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
A new decapod fauna has been recovered from Eocene rocks of San Diego County, Califomia. Decapod faunas of Eocene age have been rare from Califomia, although they are well described from the northern
The Genus Lyreidus de Haan, 1839 (Crustacea, Decapoda, Raninidae): Systematics and Biogeography
TLDR
The genus first appears in shallow-water, high-latitude Southern Hemisphere localities in New Zealand, Antarctica, and Chile in the early Eocene, and is confined to the Southern Hemisphere until the Neogene, when it dispersed into the Indo-West Pacific region.
A new species of land crab, Sesarma Say, 1817 (Decapoda, Brachyura), from the Pleistocene of Jamaica
Terrestrial arthropods are poorly known from the Cenozoic of Jamaica. A probably Late Pleistocene land crab, Sesarma primigenium sp. nov., is described from the Western Cement Company Cave, parish of
THE TRAPEZIIDAE AND DOMECIIDAE (DECAPODA: BRACHYURA: XANTHOIDEA) IN THE FOSSIL RECORD AND A NEW EOCENE GENUS FROM BAJA CALIFORNIA SUR, MEXICO
TLDR
It is suggested that both the Trapeziidae and the morphologically similar Domeciidae Ortmann, 1893, are represented in the fossil record, and coevolutionary processes appear to have resulted in high degrees of specialization in some genera within the TraPEziidae.
DIFFERENTIATION OF THE FOSSIL HEXAPODIDAE MIERS, 1886 (DECAPODA: BRACHYURA) FROM SIMILAR FORMS
TLDR
A new genus and species, Globihexapus paxillus, is recognized from the Miocene Astoria Formation of Washington, USA, and Orthakrolophos has been named to accommodate three species of Palaeograpsus Bittner, 1875.
Fossil Crustacea of the Late Pleistocene Port Morant Formation, west Port Morant Harbour, southeastern Jamaica
TLDR
Of the 17 species of decapod, only four, sparsely represented, are also common to southeast Port Morant Harbour, where they are relatively common; two species are known from other deposits in Jamaica; two from other Caribbean islands; and eight are Recent species new to the fossil record of the Caribbean.
NEW SPECIES OF CALAPPID CRABS FROM WESTERN NORTH AMERICA AND RECONSIDERATION OF THE CALAPPIDAE SENSU LATO
Abstract Analysis of dorsal carapace characters of fossil and extant genera of the Calappidae sensu lato supports Bellwood's (1996) assignment of the group into four families based upon phylogenetic
Neogene and Quatenary crabs (Crustacea, Decapoda) collected from Costa Rica and Panama by members of the Panama Paleontology Project
TLDR
Of the crabs described herein, nine of the 30 identified species have a trans-isthmian fossil record and five apparently became extinct during the Pleistocene of the East Pacific, suggesting a period of elevated extinction in this ocean after complete emergence of the Isthmus of Panama.
