A new species of stygobiotic atyid shrimp genus Troglocaris ( Xiphocaridinella ) Dormitzer, 1853 from underground stream and lakes of Kumistavi (Prometheus) Cave, Tskaltubo, Imereti region, Western Georgia is described based on morphology and DNA analysis. Troglocaris ( Xiphocaridinella ) kumistavi sp. nov. clearly differs from all Caucasian congeners by (1) long slender dorsally and ventrally armed rostrum with sting-like tip turned upward, (2) very slender fingers of pereiopod II both in… 
A new species of stygobiotic atyid shrimps of the genus Xiphocaridinella (Crustacea: Decapoda: Atyidae) from the Racha-Lechkhumi and Kvemo Svaneti, with a new record of X. kumistavi from the Imereti, Western Georgia, Caucasus
TLDR
The genus Xiphocaridinella in the Colchis Valley of the SW Caucasus now encompasses 15 species, with a new species of stygobiotic shrimps recorded from the southern part of the Racha-Lechkhumi and Kvemo Svaneti Region.
Molecular genetic analysis of stygobiotic shrimps of the genus Xiphocaridinella (Crustacea: Decapoda: Atyidae) reveals a connection between distant caves in Central Abkhazia, southwestern Caucasus
TLDR
A hydrogeological connection of a number of distant caves in Central Abkhazia of the southwestern Caucasus is satisfied, which indicates the possibility of using biospeleological studies in some cases to identify karst hydrosystems together with traditional Hydrogeological methods.
Crustacean “cave fishes” from the Arabika karst massif (Abkhazia, Western Caucasus): new species of stygobiotic crustacean genera Xiphocaridinella and Niphargus from the Gegskaya Cave and adjacent area
TLDR
Stygobiotic animals washed from various groundwater sources from the Arabika karst massif (Abkhazia, Western Caucasus) were studied and new species of stygobiotic crustacean genera Xiphocaridinella and Niphargus were described based on DNA (COI mtDNA gene marker) and morphological studies in the Gegskaya (Gega) Cave.
The record of new for the Russian fauna stygobiotic amphipod family Typhlogammaridae (Crustacea) in august cave in Sochi, Krasnodar Region
TLDR
The range of the family Typhlogammaridae is significantly expanded to the northwest along the south-western slope of the Great Caucasus, and the taxonomic status of stygobiotic amphipod genus Zenkevitchia is discussed, and it is suggested that the species discovered is a new for science and refers to the "admirabilis"-complex of cryptic species.
The hypogean invertebrate fauna of Georgia (Caucasus)
Information about the cave invertebrates of Georgia, Caucasus, is summarised, resulting in 43 troglo- and 43 stygobiont taxa reported from 64 caves. Species distribution analyses were conducted for
On the taxonomic identity of the representatives of the brachyuran genus Pilumnus Leach, 1816 (Decapoda: Brachyura: Pilumnidae) occurring along the Russian coasts of the Black Sea
TLDR
Investigations and inventory of decapod fauna in the Azov – Black Sea basin have been carried out since the XVIII century and presently consists of 28 marine species with valid names, including a widespread representative of the brachyuran genus Pilumnus Leach, 1816 occurring along the Russian coasts of the Black Sea.

TLDR
COXI based phylogenetic analysis of Caucasian clade of European Troglocaris (Crustacea: Decapoda: Atyidae) with the suggestion of a new taxonomic group structure is presented.
The taxonomic status of the Caucasian cave-dwelling pseudoscorpion Chthonius satapliaensis (Arachnida: Pseudoscorpiones)
TLDR
Cave recorded pseudoscorpion species from Georgia are shown based on specimens of both sexes from caves of Sataphlia-Tskaltubo karst massif and Zemo Imereti Plateau.
