  author={Hy N{\'y} and Nat{\'a}lia Hud{\'a} Kov{\'a}},
A redescription of two Middle Miocene burrowing ghost shrimps of the Central Paratethys, Callianassa brocchii L renthey, 1897 and Callianassa pseudorakosensis L renthey in L renthey & Beurlen, 1929, is provided. Material forming the basis of this study comes from the Studienka Formation (lower 'Sarmatian', Serravallian) of the Slovak part of the Vienna Basin and exhibits preservation allowing reassignment of the studied taxa to the genera Neocallichirus Sakai, 1988 and Eucalliax Manning… 
Ghost shrimps (Decapoda: Axiidea: Callianassidae) of the Maastrichtian (Late Cretaceous) Ocozocoautla Formation, Chiapas (Mexico)
It is postulated that virtually all major ghost shrimp clades were already established well before the Cenozoic and the conservative body plan of ctenochelid and callianassid taxa is emphasized.
The fossil record of Glypturus (Decapoda: Axiidea: Callianassidae) revisited with additional observations and description of a new species
Based on cheliped material from the Middle-Late Miocene of Iran, Glypturuspersicus n.
New Early Cenozoic ghost shrimps (Decapoda, Axiidea, Callianassidae) from Pakistan and their palaeobiogeographic implications
It can be concluded, that at the genus level, a relative homogeneity of the ghost shrimps is observed between the Eastern and the Western Tethyan regions, as already suggested by Merle et al. (2014) for the assemblage of volutid gastropods from the Lakhra Formation.
On the occurrence of Ctenocheles (Decapoda, Axiidea, Ctenochelidae) in the Bohemian Cretaceous Basin.
Re-examination of the Cretaceous decapods deposited in the National Museum in Prague revealed that all supposed specimens of the lobster genus Oncopareia found in the Middle Coniacian calcareous claystones of the Březno Formation, including one of the Fritsch's original specimens of Stenocheles parvulus, actually belong to Ctenocheles.
Ghost shrimp Calliax de Saint Laurent, 1973 (Decapoda: Axiidea: Callianassidae) in the fossil record: systematics, palaeoecology and palaeobiogeography
Re-examination of the ghost shrimp fossil record revealed that C. szobensis Müller, 1984, from the Middle Miocene of Hungary represents the same animal as C. michelottii and they are synomymised herein.
Growth, inter- and intraspecific variation, palaeobiogeography, taphonomy and systematics of the Cenozoic ghost shrimp Glypturus
Glypturus is only known from the Western Atlantic today, suggesting a relatively recent extinction on the Pacific side, and diversity within Glypturus may be underestimated, thereby also impacting the assessment of phylogenetic relationships.
Decapod Crustacea of the Central Paratethyan Ottnangian Stage (middle Burdigalian): implications for systematics and biogeography
The Oligocene–Early Miocene appearance of Palaeomyra and Liocarcinus in the circum-Mediterranean implies that sources of present-day diversity hotspots in the Indo-Pacific trace to the Western Tethys (as for other decapod genera), although coeval decapod assemblages in the indo-Pacific remain poorly known.

Based on the examination of extant species it is argued that the morphology of the major cheliped merus, in combination with other hard part morphology characters, is sufficient for assignment of the fossil material into the genus Balsscallichirus.
Taphonomy and diversity of Middle Miocene decapod crustaceans from the Novohrad-Nógrad Basin, Slovakia, with remarks on palaeobiography.
Differential decapod diversity at four localities in the Plášťovce area can be explained by collecting bias and palaeoenvironmental factors and abundance of articulated crabs suggest rapid burial.
Deep-water fossorial shrimps from the Oligocene Kiscell Clay of Hungary: Taxonomy and palaeoecology
Deep-water ghost shrimp assemblages from the otherwise well known Oligocene Kiscell Clay in Hungary suggest different ecological requirements for at least some populations of this genus in the geological past, as seen in many taxa.


Polymorphy and extinction of the Late Cretaceous burrowing shrimp Protocallianassa faujasi and first record of the genera Corallianassa and Calliax (Crustacea, Decapoda, Thalassinoidca) from the Cretaceous
A biometric study of chelae of the burrowing shrimp Protocallianassa faujasi has revealed three morphotypes, interpreted as sexual dimorphs and earliest ecdysis stages (immature male and female), and a new Cretaceous callianassid, Corallia acucurvata new species, which probably was an active omnivorous analogue of its closest Recent relatives.
Description Of The Ghost Shrimp Eucalliax mcilhennyi, New Species, From South Florida, With Reexamination Of Its Known Congeners (Crustacea, Decapoda, Callianassidae)
—Eucalliax mcilhennyi, new species, is described from an intertidal sandflat bordering Fort Pierce Inlet on the Atlantic coast of Florida. The species is distinguished from known congenerics of the
In situ mud shrimps ( Decapoda : Axiidea : Callianassidae ) preserved within their burrows from the middle Miocene of the Central Paratethys
In situ preservation of mud shrimps of the family Callianassidae (Decapoda: Axiidea) has rarely been noted in the fossil record. The present contribution reports body fossils of four members of the
Calliax jonesi, N. Sp. (Decapoda: Thalassinidea: Callianassidae) from the Northwestern Bahamas
Calliax jonesi appears to be most closely related to C .
A computer-aided phylogenetic analysis of the families has confirmed the monophyly of the infraorder, based largely on the unique possession of a setose lower margin to pereopod 2, and the Thalassinidea are divided into three superfamilies: Thalassinoidea and Callianassoidea, more closely related to each other than to Axioidea.
New Miocene Decapoda (Thalassinidea; Brachyura) from Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina: Paleobiogeographic Implications
Comparison of the distribution of Miocene decapods with that of extant decapods leads to the conclusion that the thermal separation of South Atlantic and South Pacific water in the Miocene was more pronounced than today, so that there is no evidence of a discrete Magellanic Biogeographic Province characterizing the high southern latitude region during theMiocene.
Most of the Caribbean taxa reported herein belong to tropical or subtropical extant genera that inhabit both carbonate and siliciclastic, soft, shallow marine substrates, supported by the occurrence of most of the fossils in clastic units.
Redescription of Callianassa jousseaumei Nobili, 1904, a junior subjective synonym of Callianassa indica de Man, 1905 with description of a new species of Neocallichirus (Decapoda: Axiidea: Callianassidae)
A new species of Neocallichirus, N. vaugelasi, is described for specimens from Aqaba, previously attributed erroneously to C. (or N.) jousseaumei, and N. natalensis Barnard, 1947 is removed from the synonymy of the latter.
An early Miocene deep‐water decapod crustacean faunule from the Vienna Basin (Western Carpathians, Slovakia)
Palaeobiogeographical affinities of the described taxa suggest a trans‐Atlantic migration during the early Miocene, andPalaeoecological data suggest that deposition of the levels (Lakšárska Nová Ves Formation) took place under generally low‐energy, deep‐water conditions that were conducive to the preservation of delicate structures.
Two new callianassid shrimps from Brazil (Crustacea: Decapoda: Thalassinidea)
—Biffarius delicatulus and Eucalliax cearaensis are described from Brazil. Each species is the third of their genus to be recorded from the western Atlantic and the first of their genus known from
