A large collection of fossil decapods has yielded several new occurrences for late Pleistocene deposits of Guam, United States Territory. Neocallichirus? sp., Myra fugax, Thalamita crenata, Rhinolambrus pelagicus, Scylla serrata, Calappa hepatica, Carpilius sp., Actaeodes sp., and several indeterminate chela fragments are herein reported as fossils from Guam for the first time. Emended descriptions and additional illustrations are provided for the previously reported taxa, Macrophthalmus… Expand
OLIGOCENE AND MIOCENE DECAPODS (THALASSINIDEA AND BRACHYURA) FROM THE CARIBBEAN
TLDR
Most of the Caribbean taxa reported herein belong to tropical or subtropical extant genera that inhabit both carbonate and siliciclastic, soft, shallow marine substrates, supported by the occurrence of most of the fossils in clastic units. Expand
MIOCENE FOSSIL DECAPODA (CRUSTACEA: BRACHYURA) FROM PATAGONIA, ARGENTINA, AND THEIR PALEOECOLOGICAL SETTING
ABSTRACT Five previously undescribed decapod taxa have been collected from lower upper Miocene rocks of the Puerto Madryn Formation, Península Valdés region, Chubut Province, Patagonia, Argentina.Expand
Miocene and Pleistocene crabs (Crustacea, Decapoda) from Sabah and Sarawak
TLDR
The material in the present collections contains species hitherto absent from the fossil record of Borneo sensu lato; the stratigraphical ranges of other species is extended. Expand
The family Goneplacidae MacLeay, 1838 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura): systematics, phylogeny, and fossil records
A phylogenetic analysis of 14 genera of the family Goneplacidae MacLeay (Decapoda: Brachyura: Xanthoidea) is presented based upon 45 adult morphological characters. Two most-parsimonious trees wereExpand
The family Goneplacidae MacLeay, 1838 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura): systematics, phylogeny, and fossil records
TLDR
The present analysis suggests that the Goneplacidae is divided into six subfamilies: Carinocarcinoidinae subfam. Expand
A new classification of the Xanthoidea sensu lato (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura) based on phylogenetic analysis and traditional systematics and evaluation of all fossil Xanthoidea sensu lato
A phylogenetic analysis was conducted including representatives from all recognized extant and extinct families of the Xanthoidea sensu lato, resulting in one new family, Hypothalassiidae. FourExpand
REVISION OF PORTUNOIDEA RAFINESQUE, 1815 (DECAPODA: BRACHYURA) WITH EMPHASIS ON THE FOSSIL GENERA AND FAMILIES
TLDR
The analyses indicate that the superfamily Portunoidea is much more diverse at the family level than has previously been recognized, and three subfamilies are elevated to family status. Expand
UTILITY OF PROXY CHARACTERS FOR CLASSIFICATION OF FOSSILS: AN EXAMPLE FROM THE FOSSIL XANTHOIDEA (CRUSTACEA: DECAPODA: BRACHYURA)
TLDR
The identification of carpiliids and pseudoziids in the fossil record yields critical information about the time of divergence of these groups, no later than Eocene, and the relationships between those two families, the Eriphiidae and the extinct Zanthopsidae. Expand
MACROPHTHALMUS (EUPLAX) H. MILNE EDWARDS, 1852, A VALID SUBGENUS OF OCYPODOID CRAB (DECAPODA: BRACHYURA: MACROPHTHALMIDAE), WITH DESCRIPTION OF A NEW SPECIES FROM THE PHILIPPINES
TLDR
A related species, Macrophthalmus (Euplax) dagohoyi, new species, is described from subtidal mangroves in Bohol, central Philippines. Expand
Neogene and Quaternary Ghost Shrimps and Crabs (Crustacea: Decapoda) from the Philippines
Twenty species in 17 genera of decapod crustaceans are reported from the Upper Miocene Mapulo Formation in Taysan, Batangas, southern Luzon and the Lower Pleistocene Man- dog Formation in Davao City,Expand

Eocene decapod crustaceans from Pulali Pointc Washington
TLDR
The decapod fauna is typical of those previously reported from deep-water, continental slope settings of the Pacific Northwest with the exception of the occurrence of Carpilius, which has a mainly tropical distribution, and Palaeopinnixa which has previously been reported primarily from lower-latitude settings.
