A new species of palaemonid shrimp from the Northern Territory Kakadu National Park is described and illustrated. Kakaducaris glabra, gen, nov., sp. nov., can not be satisfactorily referred to the described subfamilies of the Palaemonidae and a new subfamily Kakaducaridinae is designated (see addendum).

A new species of Euryrhynchus Miers, with a discussion of the systematic position of the Euryrhynchidae Holthuis (Crustacea, Decapoda)
The recent elevation of the euryrhynchids to family status is supported, whilst a discussion is presented of their systematic position and affinities, emphasising the remote systematic affinity with the Typhlocarididae, previously assumed to be closely related. Expand
Some palaemonid shrimps (Crustacea : Decapoda) from northern South China Sea, with descripitions of two new species
Thirty-four palaemonid species from the northern area of South China Sea are reported in the present paper, including two new species, Paranchistus lini, new species, and Periclimenes chacei, newExpand
Carideorum catalogus: the recent species of the dendrobranchiate, stenopodidean, procarididean and caridean shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda)
A checklist of recent species of dendrobranchiate, stenopodidean, procarididean and caridean shrimps including synonyms and type localities. Also listed are unavailable names, larval names, nominaExpand
Global diversity of shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea) in freshwater
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. Expand
A re-appraisal of the systematic status of selected genera in Palaemoninae (Crustacea: Decapoda: Palaemonidae).
The genera PalAemonetes, Exopalaemon and Coutierella are demonstrated to be junior synonyms of Palaemon, which now contains 83 species, and two replacement names are needed. Expand
, 1890 and Pontoniinae Kingsley , 1879 all become synonyms of Palaemonidae Rafinesque , 1815 ( Crustacea : Decapoda )
In recent years the systematic position of genera in the shrimp families Gnathophyllidae and Hymenoceridae has been under debate, with phylogenetic studies suggesting the families not to formExpand
Let’s be pals again: major systematic changes in Palaemonidae (Crustacea: Decapoda)
Neither family in the shrimp families Gnathophyllidae and Hymenoceridae is valid, and all three supra-generic taxa are formally synonymised with Palaemonidae. Expand
Systematic revision and reappraisal of the Kakaducarididae Bruce (Crustacea : Decapoda : Caridea) with the description of three new species of Leptopalaemon Bruce & Short
The Texan cave shrimp, Calathaemon holthuisi (Strenth, 1976), provisionally included in the Kakaducarididae by Bruce (1993), is re-assigned back to the Palaemonidae. Expand
Molecular systematics of caridean shrimps based on five nuclear genes: Implications for superfamily classification
The results suggest that the currently accepted superfamily classification of the Caridea does not reflect their evolutionary relationships, and a major revision of the higher systematics of CarideA appears thus to be vital. Expand
Molecular systematics of the Kakaducarididae (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea).
The hypothesis that the Kakaducarididae is comprised of relict species in specialised ecological niches is not supported by the molecular data, which instead suggest a relatively recent origin for the group in northern Australia, sometime in the late Miocene or Pliocene. Expand


Leptopalaemon gagadjui gen. nov., sp. nov., a new freshwater palaemonid shrimp from Arnhem land, and a re-evaluation of Palaemonetes holthuisi Strenth, with the designation of a new genus, Calathaemon
A new palaemonid shrimp, Leptopalaemon gagadjui, gen. nov., sp. nov., from the Arnhem Land plateau, Australia, is described and illustrated, and its systematic position discussed. The new genus mostExpand
Observations on the family Gnathophyllidae Dana, 1852 (Crustacea, Decapoda)
The adult and larval morphology indicate that the gnathophyllid shrimps are modified members of the Palaemonidae and should be included in that family, and a key to the revised subfamilies of the Paloemonidae incorporating these proposed changes is provided. Expand
The recent genera of the caridean and stenopodidean shrimps (Class Crustacea, Order Decapoda, Supersection Natantia) with keys for their determination
The origins of the superfamily Oplophoroida and its members are explained in more detail in the next section. Expand
Phylogenetic and phenetic relationships among the lower decapoda
Phenetic and cladistic methods were used to analyze relationships within the Decapoda, and the concept of the Natantia as a monophyletic group was rejected and the Stenopodidea was recognized as a taxon related to the Reptantia rather than to the Caridea. Expand
