Freshwater caridean shrimps account for approximately a quarter of all described Caridea, numerically dominated by the Atyidae and Palaemonidae. With the exception of Antarctica, freshwater shrimp are present in all biogeographical regions. However, the Oriental region harbours the majority of species, whilst the Nearctic and western Palaearctic are very species-poor. Many species are important components of subsistence fisheries, whilst the Giant River Prawn forms the basis of an extensive…

The first amber caridean shrimp from Mexico reveals the ancient adaptation of the Palaemon to the mangrove estuary environment

The aquatic and semiaquatic invertebrates in fossiliferous amber have been reported, including taxa in a wide range of the subphylum Crustacea of Arthropoda. However, no caridean shrimp has been

Neotropical Macrobrachium (Caridea: Palaemonidae): on the biology, origin, and radiation of freshwater-invading shrimp.

An origin of ancestral Macrobrachium in the Mesozoic is suggested, as a consequence of the breakup of Gondwana and fragmentation of the Tethys Sea, Neotropical and West African clades became isolated from the remaining congeners and thus can be considered as Tethyan relicts.

Range extensions of three marine shrimps (Caridea: Alpheidae, Palaemonidae) on the Brazilian coast.

Three caridean shrimps have their distribution range extended on the Brazilian coast and Athanas nitescens (Leach, 1813) (Alpheidae), an invasive species from the eastern Atlantic, is now confirmed to have established populations in Brazil with the finding of ovigerous females on the coast of Rio de Janeiro.

Notes on the shrimp genus Palaemon Weber, 1795 (Crustacea, Decapoda, Palaemonidae) and related genera from Taiwan.

The shrimp genus Palaemon Weber, 1795 and its related genera in Taiwan are reviewed based on newly collected specimens, whilst older records are critically reviewed. Five genera and 11 species are

Dead Shrimp Blues: A Global Assessment of Extinction Risk in Freshwater Shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea)

This first global assessment of extinction risk for a major group of freshwater invertebrates, caridean shrimps, finds that two species are extinct with a further 10 possibly extinct, and almost one third of species are either threatened or Near Threatened (NT).

Freshwater Shrimps (Atyidae, Palaemonidae, Typhlocarididae) in the Broader Mediterranean Region: Distribution, Life Strategies, Threats, Conservation Challenges and Taxonomic Issues

There are 50 species and subspecies currently reported from the freshwater systems of the broader Mediterranean region that belong to 11 genera and three families, and most species have a very restricted distributional range.

REVIEW AND REDESCRIPTION OF THE FRESHWATER ATYID SHRIMP GENUS SYNCARIS HOLMES, 1900, IN CALIFORNIA

Salient and consistent differences between the species are the dorsal dentition of the rostrum and the number of pereopods bearing exopods, a character often associated with higher-level taxonomic differences in the past.

Phylogenetic relationships of the globally distributed freshwater prawn genus Macrobrachium (Crustacea: Decapoda: Palaemonidae): biogeography, taxonomy and the convergent evolution of abbreviated larval development

Phylogenetic relationships demonstrate that, despite some evidence for regional diversification, Australia, Asia and South America clearly contain Macrobrachium species that do not share a common ancestry, suggesting that large‐scale dispersal has been a major feature of the evolutionary history of the genus.
