Revision of the family Acidopsidae Števčić, 2005, and the systematic position of Typhlocarcinodes Alcock, 1900, Caecopilumnus Borradaile, 1902, and Raoulia Ng, 1987, with descriptions of two new genera and five new species (Crustacea: Brachyura: Goneplacoidea).

The family Acidopsidae Števčić, 2005, is revised; and two subfamilies are recognised. The Acidopsinae Števčić, 2005, is characterised by the coxal male opening, a quadrate basal antennal article and vulvae arranged near the median longitudinal thoracic sternal groove. Three genera are included in the Acidopsinae: Acidops Stimpson, 1871 (with two species), Parapilumnus Kossmann, 1877 (with two species) and Crinitocinus gen. nov. (monotypic for Pilumnus alcocki Borradaile, 1902). The Raouliinae… Expand

The Indo-Pacific Pilumnidae XVI. On the identity of Pilumnus cristimanus A. Milne Edwards, 1873, and the status of Parapilumnus Kossmann, 1877 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura), with description of a new species from rubble beds in Guam
The genus Parapilumnus Kossmann is redefined on the basis of the type species, Pilumnus cristimanus A. Milne Edwards, 1873, and a new species, ParapILumnus oryctos from Guam, and is transferred into the subfamily Chasmocarcininae in the family Goneplacidae. Expand
A new family for Sotoplax robertsi Guinot, 1984, with a diagnosis and key to the Goneplacoidea Macleay, 1838 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura)
Sotoplax is characterised by a suite of characters, particularly related to the thoracic sternum, male abdomen, and to the protection of the penis, which places it as a taxon independent from the Euryplacidae and the other 10 families currently grouped in the superfamily Goneplacoidea MacLeay, 1838.

West African brachyuran crabs (Crustacea: Decapoda)
The West African marine brachyuran crab fauna, comprising 218 named species in 120 genera and 26 familes, is surveyed and it is suggested that the family Geryonidae Colosi, 1923, shows closest affinities with the family Portunidae Rafinesque, 1815. Expand
Significance of the sexual openings and supplementary structures on the phylogeny of brachyuran crabs (Crustacea, Decapoda, Brachyura), with new nomina for higher-ranked podotreme taxa.
The penial area proves to be an essential diagnostic feature in Brachyura, with a value comparable to that of the gonopods, and trends towards the coxo-sternal condition are exemplified by multistate characters, varying from a shallow depression to a long groove along expanded sternites 7 and 8, and ultimately their complete, extended junction typifying the most derived coXo-Sternal condition.
