Abstract The phylogenetic relationship among freshwater crab species of Geothelphusa from northern Taiwan and the Yaeyama Group of islands (including Iriomote and Ishigaki) in the southern Ryukyus was studied using the mitochondrial genes 16S rRNA and COI. Our results support the hypothesis that speciation of Geothelphusa among these islands was the result of cyclic glaciations and interglaciations during the Pleistocene. Two main clades, one the Taiwan Group (containing several clades… Expand
Out of the Sichuan Basin: Rapid species diversification of the freshwater crabs in Sinopotamon (Decapoda: Brachyura: Potamidae) endemic to China.
TLDR
The results challenge the current view of the four major species groups based on the morphological differences in the male first gonopod, and suggest that Climatic changes, morphological innovations, range expansion and geographical heterogeneity may all contribute to the diversification in Sinopotamon.

Phylogeography of the Two Smooth Skinks, Scincella boettgeri and S. formosensis (Squamata: Scincidae) in the Southern Ryukyus and Taiwan, as Inferred from Variation in Mitochondrial Cytochrome b Sequences
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses revealed that the populations of Scincella spp. Expand
Disentangling the divergence and cladogenesis in the freshwater crab species (Potamonautidae: Potamonautes perlatus sensu lato) in the Cape Fold Mountains, South Africa, with the description of two novel cryptic lineages
TLDR
The phylogeography of the freshwater crab, Potamonautes perlatus sensu lato, from six drainage systems along the Cape Fold Mountains, South Africa is determined and it is concluded that three lineages are nested within P. perlatus s.l., two representing novel species. Expand
Phylogeographic Study of Whip Scorpions (Chelicerata: Arachnida: Thelyphonida) in Japan and Taiwan
TLDR
The results highlight the risks of a priori assumption solely on the basis of geological data for applying it as a calibration point to some terrestrial animals in this region and suggest that phylogenetic diversity of the species in the Southern Ryukyus have increased through two times of invasions from Taiwan.

Out of Borneo: Neogene diversification of Sundaic freshwater crabs (Crustacea: Brachyura: Gecarcinucidae: Parathelphusa)
Aim We investigate the biogeographical history of the species-rich Sundaic freshwater crab genus Parathelphusa (family Gecarcinucidae). In particular, we ask to what extent eustatic sea-levelExpand
Multilocus coalescent species delimitation reveals widespread cryptic differentiation among Drakensberg mountain-living freshwater crabs (Decapoda : Potamonautes)
TLDR
By conducting a fine-scale phylogenetic survey using invertebrates, this study provides a platform for the inclusion of freshwater invertebrate in future conservation assessments and shows the discovery of six novel lineages of freshwater crabs from a seemingly restricted distribution range. Expand
Taxonomic revision of Aegista subchinensis (Möllendorff, 1884) (Stylommatophora, Bradybaenidae) and a description of a new species of Aegista from eastern Taiwan based on multilocus phylogeny and comparative morphology
TLDR
A new species from Aegista subchinensis has been recognized on the basis of phylogenetic and morphological evidences and the nominal new species, Aegista diversifamilia sp. Expand
The genetic differentiation of a cricket (Velarifictorus micado) with two modes of life cycle in East Asia after the middle Pleistocene and the invasion origin of the United States of America
TLDR
It is suggested that divergences of lineages have twice co‐occurred with tendency of cooling climatic in Asia after the Mid‐Pleistocene, and the life‐history strategy may play an important role in lineage diversification. Expand
SYSTEMATICS OF THE INDO-WEST PACIFIC BROAD-FRONTED FIDDLER CRABS (CRUSTACEA: OCYPODIDAE: GENUS UCA)
TLDR
It is found that the Indo-West Pacifi c BF species that had been placed with the American Celuca sensu Crane, 1975, are genetically unsupported, and should be classifi ed in Austruca, together with U. sindensis, and Paraleptuca, a subgenus established with only U. inversa. Expand
Description of a new montane freshwater crab (Crustacea: Potamidae: Geothelphusa) from northern Taiwan.
TLDR
A new freshwater crab is described from a montane area in northern Taiwan based on morphological characters and molecular evidence, which supports the identity of the new species. Expand

Systematics of the Genus Geothelphusa (Crustacea, Decapoda, Brachyura, Potamidae) from Southern Taiwan: A Molecular Appraisal
TLDR
Comparisons of the DNA sequences encoding part of the mitochondrial large subunit 16S rRNA gene showed that all 5 freshwater crab species of the genus Geothelphusa constitute a single monophyletic clade distinct from species in nearby areas. Expand
A new species of Geothelphusa Stimpson, 1857, from Taiwan (Crustacea: Brachyura: Potamidae) based on morphological and molecular evidence, with notes on species from western Taiwan
TLDR
The new species can be distinguished morphologically from similar and geographically close species from western Taiwan by a suite of characters of the carapace, ambulatory legs, thoracic sternum, male abdomen, and male first pleopods. Expand
Using Molecular Tools to Establish the Type Locality and Distribution of the Endemic Taiwanese Freshwater Crab Geothelphusa chiui Minei, 1974 (Crustacea: Brachyura: Potamidae), with Notes on the Genetic Diversity of Geothelphusa from Eastern Taiwan
TLDR
DNA sequences of the holotype and paratype of G. chiui show that this taxon belongs to a subclade the members of which are found in southern Hualien County in eastern Taiwan, and that it is the sister species ofG. Expand
Recent vicariant and dispersal events affecting the phylogeny and biogeography of East Asian freshwater crab genus Nanhaipotamon (Decapoda: Potamidae).
TLDR
The molecular and geological data suggest that Nanhaipotamon originated in an area between the Wuyishan and Nanling Ranges, and the recent invasion of the genus into Taiwan Island from northeastern Fujian, via the paleo-Minjiang River on the landbridge of Taiwan Strait. Expand
