As the most species-rich subfamily of Caridea, Pontoniinae Kingsley, 1878 is well-known for its great diversity in morphology, lifestyle and habitat. However, the phylogeny of Pontoniinae has been poorly studied since it was erected, and there are many taxonomic and evolutionary controversies remained unresolved. Among these controversies, the relationship between the commensal pontoniine shrimps and their hosts is the issue of most concern. Herein, a total of 26 Indo-Pacific pontoniine species… 
Multiple host switching events shape the evolution of symbiotic palaemonid shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda)
TLDR
It is revealed that free-living forms likely colonised cnidarian hosts initially, and switching between different host phyla occurred multiple times in palaemonid evolutionary history, suggesting host switching and adaptations to newly colonised host groups must have played an important role in the evolution of this diverse shrimp group.
A New Species of the Deep-Sea Sponge-Associated Genus Eiconaxius (Crustacea: Decapoda: Axiidae), With New Insights Into the Distribution, Speciation, and Mitogenomic Phylogeny of Axiidean Shrimps
TLDR
The reconstructed mitogenomic phylogeny supported merging Eiconaxius into Axiidae, and recognized most axiidean families, except that Strahlaxiidae was suggested to be paraphyletic, but more comprehensive taxon sampling is still needed to resolve the explicit internal relationships among Axiidea.
Re-evaluation of the systematic status of two deep-water recorded Periclimenes species (Decapoda : Palaemonidae), with a preliminary analysis on the evolution of certain echinoid-associated palaemonid shrimps and related taxa
TLDR
Based on an analysis incorporating molecular, morphological and ecological data, P. rectirostris is suggested to belong to the genus Sandimenes Li, 2009, but the systematic status of P. josephi is still undetermined due to the polyphyletic state of the genus Zenopontonia Bruce, 1975a.
Insights into the morphology of symbiotic shrimp eyes (Crustacea, Decapoda, Pontoniinae); the effects of habitat demands
TLDR
Morphometric differences in the optical morphology of symbiotic palaemonid shrimps can be observed among species symbiotic with different host organisms and bivalve symbionts appear to have an eye design that is solely unique to this host-symbiont grouping, a design that spans across multiple genera of phylogenetically unrelated animals.
The family Anchistioididae Borradaile, 1915 (Decapoda: Caridea) is a synonym of Palaemonidae Rafinesque, 1815 based on molecular and morphological evidence
TLDR
A further phylogeny of Palaemonoidea based on two mitochondrial and five nuclear markers is constructed to resolve the issue of the validity of Anchistioididae as a distinct family and it is argued that these are ambiguous and not well founded to support the family-level status of the genus.
Coming out of your shell or crawling back in: multiple interphylum host switching events within a clade of bivalve- and ascidian-associated shrimps (Caridea: Palaemonidae)
TLDR
It is hypothesized that similar internal environments of shrimp hosts from different phyla will function as hot spots for interphylum host switching in various lineages of symbionts.
Insights into the morphology of symbiotic shrimp eyes (Crustacea, Decapoda, Palaemonidae); the effects of habitat demands
TLDR
Evolutionary pressures from their host environments are having an impact on the optical morphology of their eyes however, as indicated by host-hopping events there ecological adaptations occur post host invasion.
Trait and phylogenetic diversity provide insights into community assembly of reef‐associated shrimps (Palaemonidae) at different spatial scales across the Chagos Archipelago
TLDR
A rare analysis of assembly processes structuring a distinct group of cryptofauna, the Palaemonidae, in the Chagos Archipelago, a reef ecosystem under minimal direct human impacts in the central Indian Ocean provides a rare evaluation of phylogenetic diversity methods.

Coral-host specificity of Red Sea Lithophaga bivalves: interspecific and intraspecific variation in 12S mitochondrial ribosomal RNA.
TLDR
The notion of a very high degree of species specificity between boring bivalves of the genus Lithophaga and their coral hosts in the Red Sea is supported.
Systematic status of the caridean families Gnathophyllidae Dana and Hymenoceridae Ortmann (Crustacea : Decapoda): a preliminary examination based on nuclear rDNA sequences
TLDR
Molecular analysis supports the similarities in larval morphology between Hymenoceridae, Gnathophyllidae and Pontoniinae and therefore draws into question the familial status of the former two groups.
Periclimenes cannaphilus, new species, the second palaemonid shrimp (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea) associated with sibogrinid tube worm inhabiting hydrothermal vents
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis based on sequences of the mitochondrial DNA COI gene supports the recognition of two clades corresponding to the palaemonid shrimp genus Periclimenes and P. thermohydrophilus, which are closely related to P. cannaphilus.
Molecular phylogeny of the superfamily Palaemonoidea (Crustacea : Decapoda : Caridea) based on mitochondrial and nuclear DNA reveals discrepancies with the current classification
TLDR
A revision of Palaemonoidea and a re-evaluation of its constituent taxa appear to be necessary even though the systematic status of the subfamily Pontoniinae is still undetermined.
The Palaemonoid Shrimp Fauna (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea) of the Cobourg Peninsula, Northern Territory
TLDR
This report provides the first general account of the palaemonoid fauna of a larger focal area from northern Australia, and one third of the pontoniine shrimps known to occur in Australian waters are now known to occurred in the Port Essington region.
Additions to the genus Phycomenes Bruce, 2008 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Pontoniinae)
The genus Phycomenes was recently described by Bruce (2008)) for a small sea-grass inhabiting shrimp, Phycomenes zostericola Bruce, 2008, from south-east Queensland, Australia. The close similarity
Decapod Phylogenetics And Molecular Evolution
TLDR
A database of molecular markers for use at different scales of the evolutionary spectrum in decapod crustaceans is developed and several recent hypotheses suggest that resolving the systematics of this group is a difficult task.
TWO NEW GENERA AND A NEW SPECIES OF CRINOID-ASSOCIATED PONTONIINE SHRIMPS (DECAPODA: CARIDEA: PALAEMONIDAE)
TLDR
Two new genera of crinoid-associated pontoniine shrimps are described and illustrated and Brucecaris is established for Periclimenes tenuis Bruce and Unguicaris panglaonis is described from crinoids-associated material collected at Panglao Island, Bohol Sea, The Philippines.
Taxonomy, phylogeny, historical biogeography, and historical ecology of the genus Pontonia (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea: Palaemonidae)
TLDR
The historical ecology of the shrimps is analysed using their hypothesized phylogeny, and a deductive BPA method was applied, measuring the fit of the shrimp phylogeny on the hypothesized host phylogeny at different taxonomical levels of the hosts.
