Two new decapod (Crustacea, Malacostraca) complete mitochondrial genomes: bearings on the phylogenetic relationships within the Decapoda
The phylogenetic inferences suggest monophyly of the Decapoda and its two suborders, and that several lineages within the Reptantia are consistently recovered with high nodal supports, suggest the best mitochondrial genome phylogeny can be found on the premise that systematic errors should be minimized as much as possible.
Molecular phylogeny of the superfamily Palaemonoidea (Crustacea : Decapoda : Caridea) based on mitochondrial and nuclear DNA reveals discrepancies with the current classification
A revision of Palaemonoidea and a re-evaluation of its constituent taxa appear to be necessary even though the systematic status of the subfamily Pontoniinae is still undetermined.
Phylogeny of penaeoid shrimps (Decapoda: Penaeoidea) inferred from nuclear protein-coding genes.
Phylogenetic relationships between spiny, slipper and coral lobsters (Crustacea, Decapoda, Achelata).
Molecular evidence for the Southern Hemisphere origin and deep-sea diversification of spiny lobsters (Crustacea: Decapoda: Palinuridae).
Phylogeny of Stenopodidea (Crustacea : Decapoda) shrimps inferred from nuclear and mitochondrial genes reveals non-monophyly of the families Spongicolidae and Stenopididae and most of their composite genera
The present molecular phylogeny provides some support that stenopoididean shrimps colonised the deep sea in multiple circumstances and suggests that the morphological characters currently adopted to define genera are mostly invalid and substantial taxonomic revisions are required.
Phylogenetic relationships within the Pylochelidae (Decapoda: Anomura: Paguroidea): A cladistic analysis based on morphological characters
Phylogenetic relationships within the “symmetrical” hermit crab family Pylochelidae were analyzed and the subfamily Trizochelinae was found to have four distinct clades and several ambiguously placed taxa.


Bilaterian Phylogeny Based on Analyses of a Region of the Sodium–Potassium ATPase β-Subunit Gene
Primers were developed to amplify a 1.3-kb region of the α subunit of the nuclear-encoded sodium–potassium ATPase α-subunit gene from 31 bilaterians representing several phyla to provide new data for deep-level metazoan phylogenetic studies, and ATPase-based trees support monophyly for several clades.
Phylogeny of the Decapoda reptantia: Resolution using three molecular loci and morphology
The controversial interrelationships of the major clades of the reptant decapods are resolved by simultaneous analysis of 16S, 18S, and 28S rRNA sequences in combination with morphology, including the first molecular data for the controversial Polychelidae, Glypheidae, and Enoplometopidae.
Phylogeny of Thalassinidea (Crustacea, Decapoda) inferred from three rDNA sequences: implications for morphological evolution and superfamily classification
The results do not support the generally used classification scheme of Thalassinidea and suggest that the infraorder might be divided into two superfamilies instead of three as suggested based on larval morphology, second pereiopod morphology in adults and gastric mill structure.
Molecular phylogeny and historical biogeography of the large carpenter bees, genus Xylocopa (Hymenoptera: Apidae)
Historical biogeographical analyses of the genus Xylocopa Latreille are presented, showing that the major splits in the carpenter bee phylogeny occurred well after the final breakup of Gondwanaland, but before important Miocene fusion events.
Molecular phylogeny of the mud lobsters and mud shrimps (Crustacea : Decapoda : Thalassinidea) using nuclear 18S rDNA and mitochondrial 16S rDNA
Maximum-likelihood and Bayesian analyses show equivocal support for the monophyly of the Thalassinidea, but show strong support for division of the infraorder into two major clades.
Single-copy nuclear genes recover cretaceous-age divergences in bees.
The results indicate that each of the four subfamilies arose well before the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary and suggest that the early radiation of halictid bees involved substantial African-South American interchange roughly coincident with the separation of these two continents in the late Cret Jurassic.
Nuclear genes resolve mesozoic-aged divergences in the insect order Lepidoptera.
The 18S ribosomal RNA gene is tested for reconstructing Mesozoic-aged divergences within the insect order Lepidoptera and its ability when combined with a second, previously analyzed nuclear gene (phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase, PEPCK) to strongly resolve these relationships is tested.
