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. All major replant clades are represented including the first molecular data for the controversial Polychelidae, Glypheidae, and Enoplometopidae. Interrelationships of major clades in the shortest morphological cladograms were identical to those based on the molecular partition, and were congruent with those of… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

On the Origin of Decapoda
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic trees for the closely related families Callianassidae and Ctenochelidae as well as for outgroup representatives of the family Axiidae are generated and support was found for continued recognition of many separate genera in this group and for the naming of additional ones.
Anomuran Phylogeny: New Insights from Molecular Data
TLDR
The polyphyletic origin of asymmetrical hermit crabs is a radical departure from previous studies and suggests independent derivations of asymmetry in three separate clades: Paguridae, Coenobitidae + Diogenidae, and Parapaguridae.
Combining morphological and molecular data resolves the phylogeny of Squilloidea (Crustacea : Malacostraca)
TLDR
The phylogeny of Squilloidea is inferred using a combined dataset comprising 75 somatic morphological characters and four molecular markers to obtain a well resolved and strongly supported phylogeny that is largely congruent with previous estimates.
Phylogeny of the Infraorder Caridea Based on Mitochondrial and Nuclear Genes (Crustacea: Decapoda)
TLDR
The first comprehensive molecular phylogeny of the infraorder Caridea is presented, combining nuclear and mitochondrial gene sequences, to evaluate the relationships among 14 superfamilies and 30 families and suggests polyphyletic and paraphyletic relationships among genera within the families Atyidae, Pasiphaeidae, Oplophoridae, Hippolytidae, Gnathophyllidae, and Palaemonidae.
Model-based multi-locus estimation of decapod phylogeny and divergence times.
Two new decapod (Crustacea, Malacostraca) complete mitochondrial genomes: bearings on the phylogenetic relationships within the Decapoda
TLDR
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.
Phylogeny of Thalassinidea (Crustacea, Decapoda) inferred from three rDNA sequences: implications for morphological evolution and superfamily classification
TLDR
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.

A new hypothesis of decapod phylogeny
TLDR
A cladistic analysis based on external morphology was carried out on 60 taxa of decapod crustaceans, finding that none of the traditional groups Palinura, Anomura, and Macrura is monophyletic.
Phylogeny of decapods: moving towards a consensus
TLDR
Although the recognition of four broad groups within Decapoda has long been a staple of textbooks and even the primary taxonomic literature, a precise resolution of phylogenetic relationships within the order has proved more difficult.
Phylogenetic systematics of the reptantian Decapoda (Crustacea, Malacostraca)
TLDR
It is shown that the Reptantia represent a monophyletic taxon, and alternative hypotheses of reptantian interrelationships, the systematic position of the Reptants within the decapods, and some conclusions concerning the habits and appearance of the reptilesantian stem species are discussed.
The higher taxonomy and evolution of Decapoda (Crustacea)
TLDR
The view of this paper is that the Decapoda are monophyletic and distinct from the Euphausiacea, but that most previous subordinal arrangements of the decapods are polyphyletic.
THE MONOPHYLY OF BRACHYURAN CRABS: A PHYLOGENETIC STUDY BASED ON 18S rRNA
TLDR
Results from sequence-divergence estimates and phylogenies inferred by maximum parsimony analyses of aligned sequences suggest that the Raninidae demarcate the lower limit of the Brachyura and form a distinct lineage that diverged early from the lineage leading to other members of this infraorder.
Phylogenetic Relationships of Clawed Lobster Genera (Decapoda : Nephropidae) Based on Mitochondrial 16S rRNA Gene Sequences
TLDR
The current taxonomy of the clawed lobster family Nephropidae does not reflect the phylogeny of this group as suggested by the molecular data, and some morphological characters that appear synapomorphic for Nephrops and Metanephrops may be due to convergence rather than symplesiomorphy.
Arthropod phylogeny based on eight molecular loci and morphology
TLDR
The optimal ‘total evidence’ cladogram supports the crustacean–hexapod clade, recognizes pycnogonids as sister to other euarthropods, and indicates monophyly of Myriapoda and Mandibulata.
Phylogeny of the Anomura (Decapoda, Crustacea): Spermatozoa and spermatophore morphological evidence

Phylogenetic analysis of the Malacostraca (Crustacea)

  • 2001
TLDR
The present analysis supports the basal position of the Stomatopoda, and suggests a sister-group relationship is suggested between Euphausiacea and Peracarida (including Thermosbaenacea), with the Syncarida as the sister group to both taxa.
Higher level relationships of leeches (Annelida: Clitellata: Euhirudinea) based on morphology and gene sequences.
TLDR
Results suggest that the nuclear 18S rDNA gene yields a meaningful historical signal for determining higher level relationships, andBiogeographic patterns supported a New World origin for Arhynchobdellida, and analyses combining all data from the three character sets yielded one most-parsimonious tree.
