The names Gebiidea and Axiidea, erected by de Saint Laurent (1979), have priority over others for the two infraorders of shrimps previously included in Thalassinidea. Importantly, Thalassinidea are not monophyletic and the name should be replaced. Gebiidea and Axiidea, besides having priority and describing two monophyletic taxa, are now in common use (130 citations) and are more stable than alternative schemes proposed by Sakai (2005 and later). The history of the names of higher taxa applied to these groups is reviewed, and all family-group taxa listed. © Copyright 2014 by Koninklijke Brill NV, Leiden, The Netherlands. Source

Phylogenetic analysis of most genera within fossil and extant Raninoida (Brachyura) based on 72 adult morphological characters yielded a new superfamily and family level classification for the section. The section was most diverse at the family level during the Late Cretaceous but remains diverse at the genus and species level in the Holocene. New subfamilies include Bicornisranininae, Macroacaeninae, and Rogueinae within Lyreididae. New genera include Colombicarcinus, Alessandranina, Claudioranina, Giulianolyreidus and Italianira, and one new species, Colombicarcinus laevis, is described. New combinations include Alessandranina ornata (Wright and Collins, 1972), Claudioranina oblonga (Beschin, Busulini, de Angeli, and Tessier, 1988), Heus manningi (Bishop and Williams, 2000), Italianira punctulata (Beschin, Busulini, de Angeli, and Tessier, 1988), Giulianolyreidus bidentatus (Rathbun, 1935a), G. johnsoni (Rathbun, 1935a), Lyreidus teodorii (van Bakel et al., 2012), Macroacaena tridens (Roberts, 1962), M. teshimai (Fujiyama and Takeda, 1980), M. yanini (Ilyin and Alekseev, 1998) and Quasilaeviranina eocenica (Rathbun, 1935a). © The Crustacean Society, 2014.

Thalassina tsuyamensis ANDO & KISHIMOTO n. sp. is described from the lower to middle Miocene Yoshino Formation of the Katsuta Group in the Okayama Prefecture, Japan. This species is similar to the extant T. saetichelis SAKAI & TÜRKAY, 2012, but differs in having a lateral subdorsal carina on the dorsal border of the propodus with tubercles extending posterior to the anterior part of pereiopod 1. Thalassina yamato ANDO & KISHIMOTO n. sp. is described from the middle Miocene Kawachi Formation of the Kukinaga Group in the Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan. This new species is closest to the extant T. squamifera DE MAN, 1915. However, it differs from T. squamifera in having a lateral dorsal carina on the dorsal border of the propodus of pereiopod 1 extending to only one- Third length and an unarmed dorsal border of the merus of pereiopods 3 to 5. © 2016 E.

Phylogenetic analysis of most species within Necrocarcinoidea based upon 55 adult morphological characters supports the inclusion of 5 families within the superfamily. Two new genera are recognized within Necrocarcinidae, Arcticocarcinus n. gen. and Elektrocarcinus n. gen., and numerous new combinations have resulted. Necrocarcinoidea exhibited diversity peaks in the Albian (Early Cretaceous) and Campanian (Late Cretaceous), and displayed niche partitioning at the family level. Most Paleogene occurrences of Necrocarcinoidea are in carbonate rocks of Northern Europe. © 2016 by The Crustacean Society. Published by Brill NV, Leiden. Source

A phylogenetic analysis based upon 30 extinct and extant taxa of podotrematous brachyuran decapods using 74 characters shows that Podotremata sensu Guinot, 1977 is not monophyletic and results in a new classification for these crabs. Four new taxa are recognized at the section-level (Homoloida, Torynommoida, Etyoida, and Dakoticancroida) as well as two new families (Basinotopidae and Xandarocarcinidae). Dromiacea as historically defined is redefined herein to exclude Homoloidea. New generic names Noetlingocarcinus and Xandarocarcinus, and Seorsus millerae new combination also resulted from the work. © The Crustacean Society. Source
