Phylogeny of fossil and extant glypheid and litogastrid lobsters (Crustacea, Decapoda) as revealed by morphological characters

The cladistic analysis demonstrates that the glypheidean lobsters (infraorder Glypheidea) form a monophyletic group including two superfamilies: Glypheoidea and Pemphicoidea new status.

More limbs on the tree: mitogenome characterisation and systematic position of ‘living fossil’ species Neoglyphea inopinata and Laurentaeglyphea neocaledonica (Decapoda : Glypheidea : Glypheidae)

The first decapod phylogenetic tree based on whole mitogenome sequences that includes Glypheidea as one of 10 decapod infraorders positioned within the suborder Pleocyemata is constructed and appears to be a relatively derived lineage related to the Polychelida and Astacidea.

Phylogeny and Systematics of Extant and Extinct Lobsters

A phylogenetic analysis including representatives from 44 extinct and 27 extant families of lobsters resulted in the recognition of one new superfamily, Glaessnericarioidea, and three new families, Glasnericariidae, Neoglypheidae, and Litogastroidae.

Phylogeny and evolutionary history of polychelidan lobsters

The phylogenetic analysis offers the first high-resolution study of their relationships, uniting fossil and extant polychelidans and demonstrating that Eryon siburicus from the Toarcian is the oldest occurrence of this family.

Evolution and phylogeny of the mud shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda) revealed from complete mitochondrial genomes

Phylogenetic analyses based on the concatenated nucleotide and amino acid sequences of 13 protein-coding genes indicate the possible polyphyly of mud shrimps, supporting the division of the group into two infraorders and corroborating previous molecular phylogeny and justifying their infraordinal status.

A checklist of the currently recognized six families, 55 genera and 248 species (with four subspecies) of living marine lobsters is provided, together with their synonyms in recent literature and information on the type locality of the valid taxa.

Lobster (Decapoda) Diversity and Evolutionary Patterns Through Time

Analyses of diversity patterns at the infraorder, superfamily and family level demonstrate that the lobsters as a group were significantly more diverse in the Mesozoic, especially the Triassic and

Cryptic species within the commercially most important lobster in the tropical Atlantic, the spiny lobster Panulirus argus

Phylogenetic analyses indicate that lobsters from the two regions form two monophyletic groups with a molecular divergence similar to that observed between distinct congeneric lobster species and much larger than that found between conspecific lobster populations.

Relict from the Jurassic: new family of brittle-stars from a New Caledonian seamount

A new species, genus and family of brittle-star (Ophiuroidea) is described from a single eight-armed specimen collected from a depth between 360 and 560 m on Banc Durand, a seamount east of New Caledonia.




A cladistic analysis of 31 decapod genera defines the Astacidea as a monophyletic group, supports the inclusion of the Glypheoidea within the infraorder Astacides, and suggests erection of a new family, the Chimaerastacidae, for a new genus and species of decapod.

Glyphea foresti n. sp. (Decapoda) from the Cenomanian of Northern Territory, Australia

Examination of two well-preserved Cenomanian (Late Cretaceous) specimens of a glypheid lobster from Northern Territory, Australia, permits description of a new species, Glyphea foresti, with rounded margins of the abdominal pleura suggest that the paratype specimen is a female, based upon comparison with that region on Neoglyphea inopinata.

Phylogeny of the Decapoda reptantia: Resolution using three molecular loci and morphology

The controversial interrelationships of the major clades of the reptant decapods are resolved by simultaneous analysis of 16S, 18S, and 28S rRNA sequences in combination with morphology, including the first molecular data for the controversial Polychelidae, Glypheidae, and Enoplometopidae.

Molecular evidence for the origins of Antarctic fishes: paraphyly of the Bovichtidae and no indication for the monophyly of the Notothenioidei (Teleostei)

Molecular data show that the Bovichtidae are paraphyletic, but their relationships are not those suggested by Balushkin in 1992, and provide no indication of the monophyly of the Notothenioidei in its classical sense.

The higher affinities of Neoglyphea inopinata in particular and the Glypheoidae (Reptantia: Decapoda) in general.

A cladistic analysis of Neoglyphea clearly reveals that it possesses both of the diagnostic apomorphies for the fractosternalian Reptantia, the fractured or articulated sternum between the seventh and eighth thoracic somites, and the tripartite secula.

A 28S rRNA-based phylogeny of the gnathostomes: first steps in the analysis of conflict and congruence with morphologically based cladograms.

In maximum parsimony trees, nodes congruent with those of the morphologically based cladogram were found to be robust (chondrichthyans, neopterygians, euteleosteans), but some expected monophyletic groups were not finding to be so (lissamphibians, tetrapods, osteichthyans).

Phylogeny of decapods: moving towards a consensus

Although the recognition of four broad groups within Decapoda has long been a staple of textbooks and even the primary taxonomic literature, a precise resolution of phylogenetic relationships within the order has proved more difficult.

The Decapod Tree of Life: Compiling the Data and Moving toward a Consensus of Decapod Evolution

A molecular phylogeny for the order Decapoda is presented, combining nuclear and mitochondrial sequences, to investigate relationships among nine pleocyemate infraorders, one dendrobranchiate superfamily, 56 families, 113 genera, and 128 species, and discusses current and new hypotheses of decapod relationships.

Nouvelle contribution à la connaissance de Neoglyphea inopinata Forest & de Saint Laurent, à propos de la description de la femelle adulte

The view is expressed that the infraorder of Palinura, proposed in recent classifications of the Decapoda, cannot be accepted, and the three taxa Scyllaridea, Eryonidea and Glypheidea are considered as an independent infra-order.
