Investigations and inventory of decapod fauna (Crustacea: Decapoda) in the Azov – Black Sea basin have been carried out since the XVIII century and presently consists of 28 marine species with valid names, including a significant fraction of alien species such as widely distributed Rhithropanopeus harrisii (Gould, 1841) and Callinectes sapidus Rathbun, 1896 [Anosov, Ignatyev, 2016; Anosov et al., 2012, 2014]. However, there are still new records of decapod crustaceans and their associated fauna…

Resurrection and neotype designation of Pilumnus spinulosus Kessler, 1861 (Crustacea: Decapoda)

Recently published data revealed the presence of only one species along the northern coastline of the Black Sea, namely Pilumnus aestuarii Nardo, 1869, and resurrected the older name, P. spinulosus Kessler, 1861, for the representatives of the brachyuran genus PilumnUS Leach, 1816 (Decapoda: Brachyura: Pilumnidae).

New records, habitats and features of ecology four-banded goby Chromogobius quadrivittatus (Steindachner, 1863) (Pisces: Gobiidae) along the Russian coasts of the Black Sea

Four-banded, or chestnut, goby Chromogobius quadrivittatus (Steindachner, 1863) (Actinopterygii, Perciformes, Gobiidae) is recorded from in Kazachiya Bay, Sevastopol, Crimean Peninsula. The study

Review of

Macropodia czernjawskii (Brandt, 1880), described from the Black Sea, was ignored in the regional faunal accounts for more than a century, although it was recognised in the Mediterranean. Instead, M.



Redescription of the stygobitic shrimp Troglocaris (Xiphocaridinella) jusbaschjani Birštein, 1948 (Decapoda: Caridea: Atyidae) from Agura River, Sochi, Russia, with remarks on other representatives of the genus from Caucasus.

The complete re-description of Caucasian local endemic stygobitic atyid shrimp Troglocaris (Xiphocaridinella) jusbaschjani Birštein, 1948 is firstly presented and remarks on morphology of relative congeneric species from Caucassus are provided.

Determination of evolutionary units in European representatives of the crab genus Pilumnus

The authors' results give evidence for five genetic clusters within the P. hirtellus complex, and these units are relatively young and possibly allow to study ongoing processes of morphological, genetic, and ecological differentiation, leading to speciation and radiations in the coastal marine environment.

Insights into the Crustacea Decapoda of the Adriatic Sea. Observations from four sampling locations along the Croatian coast

An annotated species list is provided on the basis of seven sampling surveys of decapod crustaceans carried out on various supra-, medioand infralittoral substrates (sandy bottoms, rocky shores,

Pilumnus Leach (Decapoda:Pilumnidae Samouelle) from Mediterranean and adjacent Atlantic waters: a COI analysis

A molecular taxonomy is presented based on 544 base pair sequences of the mitochondrial COI gene (Palumbi segment) from 141 bristle crabs of the genus Pilumnus from the Mediterranean Sea and adjacent Atlantic Ocean, plus outgroups, and the partial mismatch between the morphology- and gene-based classifications is discussed.

The taxonomical status of the genus Pilumnus Leach, 1815 (Pilumnidae, Decapoda, Crustacea) in the Mediterranean Sea, focusing on three species in the Aegean Sea

The review of the relevant literature and the comparative study of numerous specimens from the Aegean Sea elucidated the prevailing taxonomic confusion on the Mediterranean species of the genus

First record and evidence of an established population of the North American mud crab Dyspanopeus sayi (Brachyura: Heterotremata: Panopeidae) in the western Mediterranean

Mitochondrial DNA confirms the identity of the species and indicates that the introduced population consists of at least three female lineages, which is the first record of this species from the western Mediterranean Sea.

Troglocaris ( Xiphocaridinella ) kumistavi sp. nov., a new species of stygobiotic atyid shrimp (Crustacea: Decapoda: Atyidae) from Kumistavi Cave, Imereti, Western Georgia, Caucasus

A new species of stygobiotic atyid shrimp genus Troglocaris ( Xiphocaridinella ) Dormitzer, 1853 from underground stream and lakes of Kumistavi (Prometheus) Cave, Tskaltubo, Imereti region, Western

The trophic position of the alien crab Rhithropanopeus harrisii (crustacea decapoda panopeidae) in the Taman Bay, Sea of Azov community

Analysis of the isotopic composition of nitrogen and carbon has shown that although marine grasses are dominating primary producers in the shallows of the bay, primary consumers only partially use this organic source and use a combination of different sources of primary production.

The first record of the copepod genus Clausidium Kossmann, 1875 (Crustacea: Copepoda: Poecilostomatoida: Clausiididae) parasitic on burrowing callianassid shrimps from the Black Sea

The species of Clausidium Kossmann, 1875 is recorded for the first time parasitic on shallow water burrowing callianassid shrimp Pestarella candida from Kazachiya Inlet (Sevastopol’) of Crimean Peninsula, representing the first record of the species and the genus from the Black Sea.

Contemporary condition of macrozoobenthos in ultrashallow zone of Taman Bay, Sea of Azov

The distribution of macrozoobenthic communities was studied in a vast ultrashallow (0–1.2 m deep) zone of northwestern Taman Bay (separated from the Kerch Strait by Chushka spit) in 2008–2009.
