ELSEWHERE in this issue of Nature (see p. 911) I have mentioned that, although the idea originated with Kemp, Gurney was the first to place the Euphausiacea in the order Decapoda, which he divided into two suborders, Euphausiacea and Eudecapoda. Gurney never intended to include the Euphausiacea in his Ray Society monograph, “Larvæ of Decapod Crustacea” (1942)—Euphausid literature is omitted from the earlier companion volume, “Bibliography of the Larvæ of Decapod Crustacea” (1939)—but a chance… 

An introduction to the biology of Northern krill (Meganyctiphanes norvegica Sars).

28S rDNA evolution in the Eumalacostraca and the phylogenetic position of krill.

The phylogenetic position of one order within this class of Crustacea, the Euphausiacea, was investigated using 28S rDNA sequences from representatives of several malacostracan orders, and suggested that Euphasiacea are most closely related to the Mysida and not the Decapoda, as is generally thought.

LARVAE OF THE BRITISH SPECIES OF DIOGENES, PAGURUS, ANAPAGURUS AND LITHODES (CRUSTACEA, DECAPODA)

Larval characters provide strong evidence of convergent evolution in the adults, both in those species at present grouped in the Paguridae and in those at present grouping in the genus Pagurus.

Phylomitogenomics of Malacostraca (Arthropoda: Crustacea)

Phylomitogenomic analyses strong support that Euphausiacea is nested within Decapoda, and closely related to Dendrobranchiata, which is also consistent with the evidence from developmental biology.

The evolutionary history of krill inferred from nuclear large subunit rDNA sequence analysis

Early events in the speciation history of krill (Malacostraca: Euphausiacea), an abundant group of extant pelagic crustaceans, were studied with slowly evolving nuclear DNA sequences (large subunit

Studies on a case of actinomycetoma pedis in Queensland. I.

An Actinomycete isolated in pure culture on 5 occasions from a human case of mycetoma pedis was found to resemble Nocardia madurae (Vincent) Blanchard, which when freshly isolated was resistant to penicillin.
