The complete larval development of an Atlantic Lepidopa from a known parental female is described for the first time. The ovigerous L. benedicti was collected at Horn Island, Mississippi (Gulf of Mexico). The larval development consisted of 4 zoeal stages, and one megalopal stage which was reached 14-17 days after hatching, at 25?C and 26%0 salinity. Zoeae of L. benedicti are very similar to those of other known Atlantic Lepidopa; there are differences among the corresponding zoeal stages in… 
Description of the newly-hatched juvenile of Aegla perobae (Crustacea: Decapoda: Aeglidae).
TLDR
Aegla perobae juveniles can be readily differentiate from the first juveniles of other aeglids species described so far by the upwardly curved condition of the distal region of the rostrum and the distinct groove along the orbital sinus produced the elevated free in this area.
A large brachyuran-like larva of the Hippidae (Crustacea : Decapoda : Anomura) from the Banda Sea, Indonesia : the largest known zoea
TLDR
A collection of planktonic Crustacea from the Banda Sea, In­ donesia, contained several specimens of a large, late stage zoea belonging to the anomuran family Hippidae, which bears a remarkable similarity to larvae of true crabs (Brachyura) in that the carapace is spherical and the lateral and rostral spines are distinctly deflected ventrally.
Distribution of Hippoidea (Decapoda, Anomura) larvae off Veracruz, southern Gulf of Mexico: inferences about their migration route
TLDR
Results suggest that several generations of A. paretii are needed for the species to reach Veracruz from South America, mainly due to the seasonal changes in direction of currents over the shelf as well as the high variability in weather conditions.
The Phenology of Sand Crabs, Lepidopa benedicti (Decapoda: Albuneidae)

TLDR
The presence of reproductive individuals and even distribution of size classes weakens an earlier hypothesis that the western Gulf of Mexico acts as a population sink for L. benedicti and suggests that it actively repositions itself at different depths in the swash zone at different times of the year, possibly for reproduction.
The long-term sand crab study: phenology, geographic size variation, and a rare new colour morph in Lepidopa benedicti (Decapoda: Albuneidae)
TLDR
The results are not consistent with an earlier suggestion that South Texas acts as a population sink for L. benedicti, but a new orange colour morph is described, which appears to be higher in Texas.
A new glimpse on Mesozoic zooplankton—150 million-year-old lobster larvae
TLDR
A new type of fossil malacostracan larva is reported, found in the 150 million years old lithographic limestones of southern Germany (Solnhofen Lithographic Limestones), which provide an important new insight into the composition of Mesozoic zooplankton and demonstrate the preservation potential of lithographicLimestones.
A WORLDWIDE REVISION OF THE RECENT AND FOSSIL SAND CRABS OF THE ALBUNEIDAE STIMPSON AND BLEPHARIPODIDAE, NEW FAMILY (CRUSTACEA: DECAPODA: ANOMURA: HIPPOIDEA)
TLDR
The state of taxonomic knowledge regarding the Albuneidae is summarized; the family is divided into two new subfamilies; two new genera and six new species of albuneids are described; and new information on species' ranges and biology is presented.
Abundance and Size of Sand Crabs, Lepidopa benedicti (Decapoda: Albuneidae), In Southern Texas
Abstract Albuneid sand crabs are found in sandy beaches around the world, but little is known about the basic biology of any species in the family. We sampled sand crabs, Lepidopa benedicti, for 2
Filtering out parasites: sand crabs (Lepidopa benedicti) are infected by more parasites than sympatric mole crabs (Emerita benedicti)
TLDR
The thoracic ganglia, which make up the largest proportion of neural tissue, contained the largest numbers of Polypocephalus sp.
Functional morphology of giant mole crab larvae: a possible case of defensive enrollment
TLDR
The larvae described here most likely represent the ultimate pelagic larval stages, or rare cases of ‘early megalopae’, and the morphological features indicate that giant hippidan larvae perform defensive enrollment.

TLDR
The remainder of the work on Decapod Larvae which I had not dared to hope would ever be published is accepted, and the general part is as I originally planned it, but the descriptive part has been much curtailed.
