In this study, we constructed the first molecular phylogeny of the diverse crab superfamily Majoidea (Decapoda: Pleocyemata: Brachyura), using three loci (16S, COI, and 28S) from 37 majoid species. We used this molecular phylogeny to evaluate evidence for phylogenetic hypotheses based on larval and adult morphology. Our study supports several relationships predicted from larval morphology. These include a monophyletic Oregoniidae family branching close to the base of the tree; a close… Expand
