Among the 516 taxa of thalassinideans so far described, there is a strong latitudinal increase in species numbers from high latitudes towards the equator in both hemispheres. Numbers of species in the northern hemisphere are similar to those in the southern one. Thirty-two percent of the species are found in the Indo-West Pacific and 22% in the Southwest Atlantic. All species are benthic and live either in marine or brackish water. Ninety-five percent of all thalassinideans inhabit shallow…

Biology of Mediterranean and Caribbean Thalassinidea ( Decapoda )

TLDR
Results of studies on the biology of several Mediterranean and Caribbean shrimps species are presented and the occurrence of debris-filled chambers in the burrows of two callianassid species, Pestarella tyrrhena and Corallianassa longiventris is discussed.

Review of the Thalassinidea (Crustacea: Decapoda) from Chile and Argentina

TLDR
This work reviews the scarce knowledge on the biogeography and life history of the Chilean and Argentine Thalassinidae and includes an analysis of original sampling sites with special focus on the local South American scientific literature.

OF THE THALASSINIDEA ( CRUSTACEA : DECAPODA ) FROM CHILE AND ARGENTINA

TLDR
This work is an attempt to review the species richness of the Thalassinidea from Chile and Argentina and indicates that the total species richness from these waters still remains to be discovered.

A guide to the Thalassinidea (Crustacea: Malacostraca: Decapoda) of the South Atlantic Bight

TLDR
The examination of extensive collections from the National Museum of Natural History, the Southeastern Regional Taxonomic Center (SERTC), and regional institutions resulted in the identification of 14 species of thalassinideans currently known to occur within this region.

Records of mud shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda: Axiidea and Gebiidae) from Pacific Mexico

TLDR
A total of 75 specimens belonging to four species of thalassinoids were collected in the intertidal and estuarine zones of two localities along the Pacific coast of Mexico, with some doubts due to taxonomic problems related to this genus in the eastern Pacific.

Biffarius pacificus , a new species of the Callianassidae (Crustacea: Decapoda: Thalassinidea) from northern Chile

Nine specimens of Biffarius pacificus sp. nov. were collected with a "van Veen" grab at two sublittoral stations off the northern coast of Chile (Iquique, 22o12'S; Patache, 22o45'S) at depths ranging

Latitudinal biodiversity patterns of meiofauna from sandy littoral beaches

Meiofaunal samples from arctic (Bear Island, Franz Josef Land, Hopen, Kolguev), temperate (Baltic Sea, North Sea), subtropical (Tunisia, Greece), tropical (Emirates, Ghana) and antarctic sandy

The Thalassinidean Mud Shrimp Upogebia vasquezi: Life Cycle and Reproductive Traits on the Amazonian Coast, Brazil

TLDR
This chapter aims to elucidate the reproductive traits of U. vasquezi with a revision about the known ecological information available for thalassinidean spe‐ cies all over the world.

A New Species of Mud-shrimp of the Genus Upogebia Leach, 1814 from Taiwan (Decapoda: Thalassinidea: Upogebiidae)

An Upogebia specimen collected from deep water off southern Taiwan is described as a new species, Upogebia edentata sp. nov.. The new species closely resembles U. fallax de Man, 1905; U. contigua

TLDR
One species is new, Neaxius frankeae, a morphologically variable species that is broadly distributed in the tropics but was previously unknown from the eastern Pacific, and one has been found to represent Neocallichirus grandimana, a species that also occurs in the western Atlantic.

A PHYLOGENY OF THE FAMILIES OF THALASSINIDEA (CRUSTACEA: DECAPODA) WITH KEYS TO FAMILIES AND GENERA

TLDR
A computer-aided phylogenetic analysis of the families has confirmed the monophyly of the infraorder, based largely on the unique possession of a setose lower margin to pereopod 2, and the Thalassinidea are divided into three superfamilies: Thalassinoidea and Callianassoidea, more closely related to each other than to Axioidea.

Pomatogebia, a new genus of thalassinidean shrimps from western hemisphere tropics (Crustacea : Upogebiidae)

TLDR
A new genus, Pomatogebia, is proposed for 3 species of thalassinidean shrimps from the tropical western Atlantic and eastern Pacific that are specialized for burrowing in massive stony corals, and Upogebia operculata (Schmitt, 1924) becomes the type species of the new genus.

TLDR
Eleven species new to science are described and one new genus is recognized: Aethogebia gorei, new genus and species, Florida Keys, U.S.A., and southern Brazil are reviewed.

Biodiversity of the Pelagic Ocean

TLDR
The basis for a predictive understanding of the interaction between diversity and ecological process can be greatly enhanced relatively inexpensively by systematically collating existing data and working up extant collections of material.

Notes On Axiopsis (Axiopsis) Serratifrons (A. Milne Edwards)

TLDR
The species is redescribed, and observations on geographical distribution, morphological variation, and behavior in captivity are provided, and it is concluded that this is a widely distributed tropical shallow water species.
