ABSTRAC1: -A new species of cave-dwelling xanthid crab of the subfamily Liomerinae, Neoliomera cerasinus, is described from marine caves in Christmas Island (Indian Ocean) and Ryukyus (Japan). The species, the largest known in the genus, is characterised by its very broad carapace, entire anterolateral margin without emarginations or lobes, very granular carapace and appendages, elongate ambulatory dactyli and structure of the male first gonopod.

A new crab Liomerinae, Neoliomera moana sp. nov., is described from the Marquesas Islands, based on three specimens collected by hand at the entrance of submarine caves at depths of 6-28 m. Within

DNA barcoding allows identification of undescribed crab megalopas from the open sea

Megalopas of 15 brachyuran crab species collected in the open sea plankton, and unknown until now, were identified using DNA barcodes (COI and 16S rRNA) to provide a new geographical record for N. cerasinus and the most remarkable features for each species.

Oceanic Shoals Commonwealth Marine Reserve survey reveals new records of xanthid crabs (Crustacea: Brachyura: Xanthidae) from northern Australia

Nine species of Xanthidae collected during the Oceanic Shoals Commonwealth Marine Reserve survey reveals new records of xanthid crabs from northern Australia, including specimens from the subfamilies Actaeinae, Euxanthinee, Liomerinae and Zosiminae.

The brachyuran crabs are diversified and widely distributed habitant throughout the world, apart from Antarctica, they are reported from all the niches of network. They are dominant in all over

Subterranean fauna of Christmas Island: habitats and salient features

The island, which has probably been emergent since the mid-Miocene, has a basalt core largely covered by Tertiary carbonates which have undergone intense karstification owing to the high rainfall on tropical forest, and through mixing corrosion as relative sea level changed and marine terraces formed as a result of tectonic uplift of the island.

An annotated bibliography of the research on marine organisms and environments at Christmas Island and the Cocos (Keeling) Islands

Without this knowledge, the ability to monitor, detect or predict anthropogenic impacts on marine species is severely restricted, and therefore limits the development of management strategies aimed at conserving the unique marine biodiversity of these islands.

Observations on the fauna from submarine and associated anchialine caves in Christmas Island , Indian Ocean Territory , Australia

We report on opportunistic sampling and/or observations of the fauna of five submarine and six associated anchialine caves in Christmas Island conducted over a total of five weeks from 2010 to 2012.
