ABSTRACT Oligocene and Miocene fossil decapods from Puerto Rico and Cuba have been poorly known; new collections from these regions as well as from the Dominican Republic have now yielded several new reports. One new genus, Psygmophthalmus, and several new species (Neocallichirus aetodes, Neocallichirus? quisquellanus, Calappa pavimenta, Necronectes collinsi, Portunus yaucoensis, and Psygmophthalmus lares) are named herein. New combinations include Euphylax domingensis (Rathbun 1919), Megokkos… 
Systematics and paleoecology of Miocene brachyuran crabs (Decapoda: Brachyura: Cancroidea, Portunidae) from the St. Marys Formation, Maryland, USA
A collection of decapod fossils from the Miocene St. Marys Formation, Little Cove Point Member (Maryland, USA), yielded six species belonging to three genera of brachyuran crabs, NecronectesA.
Review and additions to the Eocene decapod Crustacea from Chiapas, Mexico
TLDR
New and reviewed taxa support previous paleobiogeographic interpretations for this assemblage of decapod crustaceans, and add additional information on the dispersion patterns to the Pacific Coast of North America.
Neogene Decapod Crustacea from Southern Chile
ABSTRACT Twelve species of Neogene decapod crustaceans are described from late Miocene and early Pliocene deposits in the Valdivia, Osomo-Llanquihue, and Chiloé basins as well as from Mocha Island,
An early Miocene deep‐water decapod crustacean faunule from the Vienna Basin (Western Carpathians, Slovakia)
TLDR
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 Cenozoic Decapoda (Crustacea: Thalassinidea, Brachyura) from Puerto Rico, United States Territory
A large number of recently collected specimens from Puerto Rico has yielded two new species including Palaeoxanthopsis tylotus and Eurytium granulosum, the oldest known occurrence of the latter
A re-appraisal of the middle-late Miocene fossil decapod crustaceans of the ‘Faluns’ (Anjou-Touraine, France)
ABSTRACT The access to a new collection of decapod crustaceans collected from the middle-late Miocene ‘Faluns’, and examination of new specimens available, have allowed to expand the previous
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.
An appraisal of the Middle-Late Miocene fossil decapod crustaceans of the ‘Faluns’ (Anjou-Touraine, France)
ABSTRACT A detailed report of the decapod crustaceans discovered in the Middle-Late Miocene outcrops of the ‘Faluns’ of Anjou-Touraine (West of France) is here presented. The Couffon's compendium
On a new species of Graptocarcinus Roemer, 1887 (Brachyura, Dynomenidae, Graptocarcininae) from the Upper Cretaceous of southwest Cuba
A new species of Graptocarcinus, G. collinsi Vega, is recorded from lower Maastrichtian (Upper Cretaceous) strata assigned to the Arroyo Grande Formation to the south of Rodas (central Cuba). The

New occurrences of fossil decapod crustaceans (Thalassinidea, Brachyura) from late Pleistocene deposits of Guam, United States Territory
TLDR
Findings support the assertion that most decapod genera and many species that first appeared in the Miocene survive into the Recent (Schweitzer, 2001).
NEW EOCENE DECAPODS (THALASSINIDEA and BRACHYURA) FROM SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA
TLDR
The Eocene decapod fauna from California, now containing eighteen genera, has elements common to the northern Pacific coast of North America as well as taxa known only from California; thus, the area appears to have been suited for decapods adapted to a wide variety of temperature and other environmental conditions.
NEW CRABS FROM THE EOCENE AND OLIGOCENE OF BAJA CALIFORNIA SUR, MEXICO AND AN ASSESSMENT OF THE EVOLUTIONARY AND PALEOBIOGEOGRAPHIC IMPLICATIONS OF MEXICAN FOSSIL DECAPODS
Abstract A new collection of fossil decapod crustaceans from the Cretaceous Rosario Formation, the Eocene Tepetate Formation and the Oligocene El Cien Formation, Baja California Sur, Mexico, has
New Decapoda (Crustacea) from the Middle and Late Eocene of Pakistan and a revision of Lobonotus A. Milne Edwards, 1864
TLDR
Recovery of new decapod specimens from middle and late Eocene rocks of Pakistan prompted reevaluation of the known decapod fauna of the region, and Lobonotus sensu strict0 now embraces six North American species.
NEW SPECIES OF CALAPPID CRABS FROM WESTERN NORTH AMERICA AND RECONSIDERATION OF THE CALAPPIDAE SENSU LATO
Abstract Analysis of dorsal carapace characters of fossil and extant genera of the Calappidae sensu lato supports Bellwood's (1996) assignment of the group into four families based upon phylogenetic
NEW FOSSIL PORTUNIDS FROM WASHINGTON, USA, AND ARGENTINA, AND A RE-EVALUATION OF GENERIC AND FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS WITHIN THE PORTUNOIDEA RAFINESQUE, 1815 (DECAPODA: BRACHYURA)
TLDR
Examination of new portunoid fossils from southern Argentina and from the west coast of North America permit the reevaluation of the generic and family relationships within the Portunoidea Rafinesque, 1815, to suggest that the Geryonidae may in fact be derived from a portunid progenitor.
Fossil Decapod Crustaceans from the Jagüel and Roca Formations (Maastrichtian–Danian) of the Neuquén Basin, Argentina
Ten species of macruran, anomuran, and brachyuran decapod crustaceans, arrayed in eight families, were collected from seven localities in the Jagüel and Roca Formations, west-central Argentina. All
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.
Re-evaluation of the Cancridae Latreille, 1802 (Decapoda: Brachyura) including three new genera and three new species
TLDR
Recognition of new genera and reassignment of several species within the Cancrinae indicates that that subfamily may have arisen in the southern hemisphere, contrary to the previous interpretation of the subfamily as a primarily North Pacific or Tethyan group.
NEOCALLICHIRUS CACAHUATE, A NEW SPECIES OF GHOST SHRIMP FROM THE ATLANTIC COAST OF FLORIDA, WITH REEXAMINATION OF N. GRANDIMANA AND N. LEMAITREI (CRUS TACEA : DECAPODA : CALLIANASSIDAE)
TLDR
A new species described from sparsely vegetated intertidal flats of Peanut Island just inside Lake Worth Inlet on the Atlantic coast of Florida, where it occurs as a minor constituent of a thalassinid fauna dominated by the callianassids Neocallichirus rathbunae (Schmitt), Sergio mericeae Manning & Felder, and Callichirus major (Say).
