Seventeen species of decapod crustaceans have been described from Campanian through Paleocene rocks in the Santa Marta, López de Bertodano, and Sobral Formations of the James Ross Basin, Antarctica. Of these, nine are new species: Metanephrops rossensis, Glyphea australensis, Paguristes santamartaensis, Munidopsis foersteri, Retrorsichela laevis, Plagiophthalmous collinsi, Rhinopoupinia bicornis, Cristafrons praescientis, and Torynomma (Torynomma) australis. One new family, Retrorsichelidae… 

An early Miocene deep‐water decapod crustacean faunule from the Vienna Basin (Western Carpathians, Slovakia)

Palaeobiogeographical affinities of the described taxa suggest a trans‐Atlantic migration during the early Miocene, andPalaeoecological data suggest that deposition of the levels (Lakšárska Nová Ves Formation) took place under generally low‐energy, deep‐water conditions that were conducive to the preservation of delicate structures.

New Cretaceous and Tertiary decapod crustaceans from western North America
