An extensive faunal survey of freshwater habitats in Madagascar over a period of 9 years produced a large series of freshwater crabs from all six provinces on the island. The collections included three species of Hydrothelphusa (H. agilis, H. madagascariensis and H. goudoti), and specimens of three monotypic genera, Madagapotamon, Marojejy and Boreas. A detailed examination of a large series of specimens of H. madagascariensis of all ages from numerous locations throughout the island concluded… 
Insular species of Afrotropical freshwater crabs (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura: Potamonautidae and Potamidae) with special reference to Madagascar and the Seychelles
The evolutionary relationships between island and mainland faunas of the 24 species of insular freshwater crabs in the Afrotropical region are reviewed in the light of phylogenetic studies. Twenty
New collections of freshwater crabs from northern Madagascar, with the description of a new species of Foza Reed & Cumberlidge, 2006 (Brachyura, Potamonautidae), and comments on their conservation status
We report here on recent collections of freshwater crabs from Antsiranana Province, northern Madagascar. The specimens belong to three species, one of which is new to science and is described here.

Global Diversity and Conservation of Freshwater Crayfish (Crustacea: Decapoda: Astacoidea)
TLDR
The conservation status of 611 species of crayfish worldwide is discussed, based on global assessments from the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) Red List protocols as well as regional assessments on governmental endangered species lists.
A revision of the higher taxonomy of the Afrotropical freshwater crabs (Decapoda: Brachyura) with a discussion of their biogeography
The higher taxonomy of the 20 known genera of Afrotropical freshwater crabs is revised to reflect the evolutionary relationships revealed by the consensus of a series of recent morphological and
Foza raimundi, a new genus and species of potamonautid freshwater crab (Crustacea: Decapoda: Potamoidea) from northern Madagascar
ABSTRACT Foza raimundi, a new genus and species of freshwater crab from Antsiranana Province, northern Madagascar, is described from a high-altitude locality in the isolated Marojejy mountain range.
"Tree-climbing Crabs from Phytotemic Microhabitats in Rainforest Canopy in Madagascar"
TLDR
This is a rare report of a tree-climbing phytotelmic sesarmid crab living in the rainforest canopy, and the first record of a species of true freshwater crab in the canopy, albeit at a relatively low height, made as part of the Canopy Raft Program (Radeau des Cimes).

TLDR
This is a rare report of a tree-climbing phytotelmic sesarmid crab living in the rainforest canopy, and the first record of a species of true freshwater crab in the canopy, albeit at a relatively low height.
