Molecular evidence for non-monophyly of the pinnotheroid crabs (Crustacea : Brachyura : Pinnotheroidea), warranting taxonomic reappraisal
The relationships within and among some taxa are resolved to greater or lesser extent and the phylogenetic biodiversity of pinnotherid crabs is revealed.
Three new symbiotic crabs of the genus Glassella Campos & Wicksten, 1997 from Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico coasts of Florida, USA (Decapoda: Brachyura: Pinnotheridae)
Comparisons of G. floridana to the three new species of the pinnotherid crab genus Glassella reveal striking diagnostic differences between all four species in their male first gonopods and varied configurations in the gonopodal plate or its probable homologs.
Molecular evidence for non-monophyly of the pinnotheroid crabs (Crustacea : Brachyura : Pinnotheroidea), warranting taxonomic reappraisal
Molecular genetic markers were used to infer a phylogeny for the family Pinnotheridae De Haan, 1833 to reevaluate the phylogeny and systematics at the level of its subfamilies and genera and resolved the relationships within and among some taxa.

Hypersymbioses in the pinnotherid crabs (Decapoda: Brachyura: Pinnotheridae): a review
Factors influencing the meagre knowledge of hypersymbioses in the Pinnotheridae are discussed, among them the inaccessibility of crab hosts and research emphasis on taxonomy within the family.
Systematics of the genus Scleroplax Rathbun, 1893 (Crustacea: Brachyura: Pinnotheridae)
The taxonomic status of the monotypic genus Scleroplax Rathbun, 1893, is evaluated and separated from other genera of the Pinnixa White, 1846, complex. Distinguishing characters of Scleroplax are a
A new genus for the Central American crab Pinnixa costaricana Wickstenc 1982 lCrustaceac Brachyurac Pinnotheridaer
A new monotypic genus, Glassella, is recognized from the trop­ ical East Pacific for Pinnixa costaricana Wicksten, 1982, and the type species is redescribed and illustrated.

The Crustacea collections were analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively during the fourth leg (February 1994, dry season) in the three study areas Golfo Dulce, Bahía Coronado in the Sierpe-Térraba-estuary (ST) and Golfo de Nicoya (GN), confirming previous results.
Phylogenetic relationships and evolution in the genus Dissodactylus Smith, 1870 (Crustacea: Brachyura: Pinnotheridae)
A cladogram indicating sister-group relationships within the pinnotherid crab genus Dissodactylus is constructed from analysis of 28 morphological characters. The outgroup method was used to
