In revising the Indo-Pacific scyllarine lobsters, Holthuis (2002) proposed a new genus, Antipodarctus , for Scyllarus aoteanus Powell, 1949 (type locality: Great Barrier Island, New Zealand), and a new genus, Crenarctus , for two species, Scyllarus bicuspidatus De Man, 1905 (type species; type locality: Flores Sea, Indonesia) and S. crenatus (Whitelegge, 1900) (type locality: off Wata Mooli (= Wattamolla), New South Wales, Australia). According to Holthuis (2002), Antipodarctus is distinguished… 

Revision of the West African species of Scyllarus Fabricius, 1775 (Decapoda: Achelata: Scyllaridae), with the description of three phyllosoma stages of S. caparti Holthuis, 1952 and an updated identification key

Together with a revision of museum collections, the new molecular and morphological data obtained here supports the polyphyletic origin of AcantharctusHolthuis, 2002.

Additional slipper lobsters of the subfamily Scyllarinae Latreille, 1825 (Crustacea, Achelata, Scyllaridae) from Taiwan.

Nine genera and 17 species of scyllarine lobsters are now known from Taiwan, with the distributions of B. rubens, C. aureus and P. veliger extended northwards to Taiwan.

Chelarctus and Crenarctus (Crustacea: Scyllaridae) from Coral Sea waters, with molecular identification of their larvae

Morphological differences between CrenarCTus and Chelarctus larvae are established for the first time and previous misidentifications in the literature are re-assessed.

Molecular Identification of Mid to Final Stage Slipper Lobster Phyllosoma Larvae of the Genus Chelarctus (Crustacea: Decapoda: Scyllaridae) Collected in the Pacific with Descriptions of Their Larval Morphology.

A set of diagnostic morphological characteristics that can be used to discriminate among these four species of Chelarctus and from other genera in the subfamily Scyllarinae are presented.

The final phyllosoma, nisto, and first juvenile stages of the slipper lobster Petrarctus brevicornis (Holthuis, 1946) (Decapoda: Achelata: Scyllaridae)

DNA barcoding analysis using 16S rRNA gene identified these stages as the scyllarid (slipper) lobster Petrarctus brevicornis (Holthuis, 1946).

Deepwater decapod, stomatopod and lophogastrid Crustacea from Eastern Australia and the Great Australian Bight collected in 2015–2017: preliminary identifications of 191 species

A collection of deepwater decapods systematically sampled from Australia’s continental slope and abyssal plain (200–5000 m) is reported from the combined surveys of the Great Australian Bight (GAB)

The checklist of marine lobsters is updated, in the addition of nine species and one less genus, six synonymies (one genus, four species, one subspecies) have been discovered while one sub species has been revived.
