Adult ghost shrimp, Callichirus islagrande (Schmitt, 1935), are obligate inhabitants of burrow systems that they excavate deeply into beachfront sediments in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Mating presumably occurs in these burrows but has never been directly observed in C. islagrande or any other thalassinidean. A variety of possible mating systems is suggested by those of other decapods, among which are examples of both internal and external sperm deposition, sperm competition among males, and… Expand

Tables from this paper

Inferring the mating system in the burrowing shrimp Lepidophthalmus bocourti (Decapoda, Axiidea, Callichiridae) from the social structure and sexual dimorphism
TLDR
The burrow use pattern and sexual dimorphism of the burrowing shrimp Lepidophthalmus bocourti are described to infer the mating system in this species and suggest that the major cheliped might have an important role during the male-male competition for receptive females. Expand
Genotype Reconstruction of Paternity in European Lobsters (Homarus gammarus)
TLDR
Genetic markers used to assess the paternity of individual broods in the European lobster, Homarus gammarus, show that multiple paternal fertilisations are either absent, unusual, or highly skewed in favour of a single male among H.gammarus in this area. Expand
Egg production of the burrowing shrimp Callichirusseilacheri (Bott 1955) (Decapoda, Callianassidae) in northern Chile
TLDR
Fecundity was positively correlated with female size; however, correlations were allometric, which might be related to the elasticity of the abdomen. Expand
High prevalence of multiple paternity in the deep-sea shrimp Acanthephyra pelagica
TLDR
The results with respect to multiple paternity, together with the size patterns, suggest a pure-search mating system of A. pelagica, and contribute to a better understanding of the reproductive behavior of this species. Expand
Genetic assessment of parentage in the caridean rock shrimp Rhynchocinetes typus based on microsatellite markers
TLDR
Results suggest that multiple paternity in this species results from subordinate male coercive behaviour, female solicitation of multiple male matings or a combination of both. Expand
Social structure, sexual dimorphism and relative growth in the ghost shrimp Callichirus seilacheri (Bott, 1955) (Decapoda, Axiidea, Callianassidae) from the tropical eastern Pacific
TLDR
The observations on social structure, sexual dimorphism and relative growth of C. seilacheri argued that this species is polygamous, and the high frequency of solitary females found brooding embryos suggested that males might roam among galleries in search of receptive females. Expand
Population biology of the burrowing shrimp Callichirus seilacheri(Decapoda: Callianassidae) in northern Chile
TLDR
The main breeding period lasted from autumn to winter (May to August, peaking in June), and co-occurred with decreasing water temperatures and the presence of a sediment layer covering the burrows. Expand
Unraveling mating behavior for Axiidea (Crustacea: Decapoda): Burrow-dwelling callianassid shrimp in intertidal sandflat
TLDR
These findings would become basic to the understanding of thalassinidean shrimp population dynamics conducive to their key roles as benthic community organizers and ecosystem engineers in marine soft sediments. Expand
An update on reproduction in ghost shrimps (Decapoda: Axiidea) and mud lobsters (Decapoda: Gebiidea)
In this report, I review the taxonomic history, body adaptations, ecology, and reproduction of the infraorders Axiidea (ghost shrimps) and Gebiidea (mud lobsters). Known until recently as theExpand
Marine reserves and selective fishing shape mating behaviour, secondary sexual trait and growth in European lobster
Decapod crustaceans exhibit considerable variation in fertilisation strategies, ranging from pervasive single paternity to the near-ubiquitous presence of multiple paternity, and such knowledge ofExpand

Brooding and Larval Developmental Periods of the Callianassid Ghost Shrimp, Callianassa Japonica (Decapoda: Thalassinidea)
TLDR
Based on temporal changes in the densities of larvae released by females and newly-settled juveniles on the sandflat, time-lags between the release and settlement events suggested the period of planktonic development with six zoeal stages and the 1st post-larval stage to range from 20 to 25 d during mid-June to mid-August, a shorter period than those reported for seven other callianassid species. Expand
Electrophoretic Evidence of Multiple Paternity in the Lobster Homarus americanus (Milne-Edwards)
TLDR
During a routine electrophoretic screening of fifteen proteins in the eggs and early larvae from wild-caught ovigerous female lobsters, a non-Mendelian ratio is uncovered in one progeny of the Phosphoglucomutase-1 protein, finding its role in the natural history of these taxa is understood. Expand
Sperm competition and paternity assurance during the first breeding period of female snow crab (Chionoecetes opilio) (Brachyura: Majidae)
TLDR
Two highly polymorphic microsatellite DNA loci were used to determine paternity of larvae of primiparous Chionoecetes opilio females and genetic typing of the offspring revealed single paternity and indicated that the last mate to inseminate a female before oviposition gained paternity of the clutch. Expand
Genetic parentage assessment in the crayfish Orconectes placidus, a high‐fecundity invertebrate with extended maternal brood care
TLDR
Genetic parentage analyses of more than 900 progeny from 15 wild crayfish broods revealed that gravid females were invariably the exclusive dams of the offspring they tended, and that most of the females had mated with multiple males who contributed sometimes highly skewed numbers of offspring to a brood. Expand
GLUCOSE PHOSPHATE ISOMERASE INHERITANCE IN CANCER PAGURUS L. BROODS AS EVIDENCE OF MULTIPLE PATERNITY (DECAPODA, BRACHYURA)
TLDR
Cancer pagurus L. pagurus concluded that impregnation of the female could only take place when she was in the soft, very recently moulted, condition and that at any moult only one mate was involved, and that sperm could remain viable for many years in a female. Expand
Discovery of postcopulatory mate guarding in Copepoda Harpacticoida (Crustacea)
TLDR
The minimum duration of guarding was found to match the time necessary for spermatophore discharge and Guarding is interpreted as a strategy to secure paternity among Harpacticoida. Expand
REPETITIVE COPULATION AND VARIABLE SUCCESS OF INSEMINATION IN THE MARINE SHRIMP SICYONIA DORSALIS (DECAPODA: PENAEOIDEA)
TLDR
It is suggested that in nature at least some females may mate with and be inseminated by more than one male, and multiple paternity might increase the genetic diversity of a female's spawns, which may enhance survival of dispersed planktonic larvae that settle in a mosaic or heterogeneous benthic environment. Expand
Analysis of the mating system of the fiddler crab, Uca lactea
TLDR
Claw-waving male Uca lactea sometimes attracted wandering females into their burrows for underground mating, but more often mated with nearby resident females on the surface, suggesting the surface mating system of the Indo-Pacific subgenera is also employed. Expand
Aspects of sexual biology of the anomuran crab emerita asiatica
TLDR
An analysis of secondary sexual characters in post-larval juveniles during megalopa settlement corroborates the view that males and females develop separately from the megalOPA. Expand
Distributions of three species of Nihonotrypaea (Decapoda: Thalassinidea: Callianassidae) in intertidal habitats along an estuary to open-sea gradient in western Kyushu, Japan
TLDR
The intertidal distributions and habitats of three congeneric callianassid shrimps were surveyed along the estuary to opensea gradient from Ariake Sound through Tachibana Bay to the East China Sea in western Kyushu, Japan, and it has been confirmed that both N. harmandi and N. japonica (Ortmann) inhabit bare interTidal sandflats.
