Modern New Caledonia was discovered by James COOK in 1774 but the marine natural history of this part of the world started really on the second half of the 19th century when naturalist collected samples and corresponded with scientists in Europe. The ftrst comprehensive work on the crabs of New Caledonia is the large study by renowned French carcinologist Alphonse Milne-Edwards between 1872 and 1873 on material collected essentially by the botanist Balansa, in which he recorded 182 species from… 
Review of grapsoid families for the establishment of a new family for Leptograpsodes Montgomery, 1931, and a new genus of Gecarcinidae H. Milne Edwards, 1837 (Crustacea, Decapoda, Brachyura, Grapsoidea MacLeay, 1838)
TLDR
The reevalution of the morphological characters of L. octodentatus in order to reappraise its proper taxonomical status has afforded the opportunity to review most of grapsoids and, in particular, the Gecarcinidae, finding the synapomorphies of Leptograpsodes justify its from all grapsoid lineages as currently conceived.
On a collection of calappid crabs (Crustacea: Decapoda: Brachyura) from Fiji, with a description of a new species of Mursia.
TLDR
Seven species of calappid crabs were identified from material collected during four IRD-MNHN expeditions conducted in 1998 and 1999 in shallow and deep waters off Fiji, and one new species, Mursia murimura n.

Odiomarinae nov. subfam., a new subfamily for two primitive genera of Hymenosomatidae MacLeay, 1838, with preliminary remarks on the family (Crustacea, Decapoda, Brachyura)
TLDR
A new subfamily Odiomarinae nov. is erected to receive two primitive genera of the eubrachyuran family Hymenosomatidae, characterised by the presence of “intercalated platelets” on the male abdomen, either articulated and moveable or relatively less well demarcated.
A New Fiddler Crab of Austruca Bott, 1973, Closely Related to A. perplexa (H. Milne Edwards, 1852) (Crustacea: Brachyura: Ocypodidae), from the South Pacific Islands.
TLDR
A new species of fiddler crab from Fiji, Wallis & Futuna, and Samoa, in the South Pacific is described based on morphological and molecular evidence, and can be distinguished by a suite of characters, including adult size, carapace morphology, shape and coloration of the major chela.

SHALLOW-WATER TRAPEZIIDAE AND TETRALIIDAE (CRUSTACEA: BRACHYURA) OF THE PHILIPPINES (PANGLAO 2004 EXPEDITION), NEW GUINEA, AND VANUATU (SANTO 2006 EXPEDITION)
TLDR
The number of species in these locations, when compared with the number in adjacent areas, does not support the view that the Indo-Malayan region or the Indo -Australian Archipelago have served as a centre of diversification for these two families.
