Recently, a new species of the genus Ctenocheloides Anker, 2010, viz., Ctenocheloides nomurai Komai, 2013, was reported from the Kii District (= Arita Bay, Kushimoto, Wakayama Prefecture), Japan. However, Komai's species is not to be included in Anker's genus Ctenocheloides, because of differences at the generic level with the type species of that genus, Ctenocheloides attenboroughi Anker, 2010, and is thus reclassified herein under a new genus, Kiictenocheloides gen. nov. Both genera, Ctenocheloides Anker, 2010 and Kiictenocheloides gen. nov. are also different from Ctenocheles Kishinouye, 1926, the type genus of the family Ctenochelidae Manning & Felder, 1991, so that the two genera, Ctenocheloides Anker, 2010 and Kiictenocheloides gen. nov. are now included in the family Ctenocheloidae Sakai, 2011. © 2013 Koninklijke Brill NV, Leiden.

The superfamily Callianassoidea Dana, 1852 currently includes ten families (Sakai, 2011). However, recent examination of material from Tosa-Saga, Kochi Prefecture, Japan, presented the occurrence of a new species, Tosacallianassa hatasagaensis gen. et sp. nov. The deviant morphology of the new taxon shows elements of the families Anacalliacidae Manning and Felder, 1991, Callianassidae Dana, 1852, and Callianopsidae Manning and Felder, 1991 (cf. sensu nov. in Sakai, 2011). This necessitated the author to also establish a new family, Tosacallianassidae, based on the new genus. The new family is additionally included in the Callianassoidea Dana, 1852 as an eleventh member of that superfamily. © 2016 Koninklijke Brill NV, Leiden. Source

Specimens of Calocaris granulosus Grebjenjuk, 1975 (Thalassinida, Calocarididae) were found in the collections of the Zoological Museum of the University of Moscow, and on that basis the species is herein redescribed as the second species of the genus Calocarisopsis Sakai, 2011, i.e., as Calocarisopsis granulosa (Grebjenjuk, 1975).© Koninklijke Brill NV, Leiden, 2011.

Mitten crabs (Brachyura, Varunidae, Varuninae) are currently classified into six species belonging to three genera: Eriocheir De Haan, 1835, Neoeriocheir T. Sakai, 1983, and Platyeriocheir Ng, Guo & Ng, 1999, i.e., Eriocheir japonica (De Haan, 1835), E. hepuensis Dai, 1991, E. ogasawaraensis Komai, Yamasaki, Kobayashi, Yamamoto & Watanabe, 2006, and E. sinensis H. Milne Edwards, 1853; Neoeriocheir leptognatha (Rathbun, 1913); and Platyeriocheir formosa (Chan, Hung & Yu, 1995). The results of the present study, however, indicate a reclassification into four genera including one new genus, together lodging seven species, including one new species, and with an eighth currently nameless species remaining as a species inquirenda, as follows: Eriocheir De Haan, 1835, with E. japonica (De Haan, 1835) and E. ogasawaraensis Komai et al., 2006; Paraeriocheir gen. nov., with P. hepuensis (Dai, 1991) and P. sinensis (H. Milne Edwards, 1853); Platyeriocheir Ng et al., 1999, with P. formosa (Chan et al., 1995) and P. guangdonga sp. nov.; and Neoeriocheir T. Sakai, 1983, with N. leptognatha (Rathbun, 1913); under the prevailing circumstances, the species now indicated as Eriocheir sp. [= Eriocheir recta sensu Stimpson, 1858] is to be considered a species inquirenda. © 2013 Koninklijke Brill NV, Leiden, The Netherlands. Source

In this second report based on material collected by Prof. N. Zarenkov during the cruise of the R/V "Orlik" to the Gulf of Tonkin, Vietnam, in 1960, and on the cruise of the R/V "Akademik Kovalěvsky" to the Red Sea, both in 1960 and 1966, 11 species of the families Callianassidae and Upogebiidae are examined. It was found that the material includes two species, Cheramus malaccaensis (Sakai, 2002) and Trypaea tonkinae (Grebenjuk, 1975) from the Callianassidae, and Neogebicula alaini (Sakai, 1982), Paragebicula orlik sp. nov., P. vietnamensis sp. nov., Gebicula irawadyensis Sakai, 2006, Mantisgebia tuerkayi sp. nov., Upogebia acutispina De Saint Laurent & Ngoc-Ho, 1979, U. monoceros De Man, 1905, U. plantae Sakai, 1982, and U. variana sp. nov., i.e., a total of 9 species of which four are new, from the family Upogebiidae. © 2011 BRILL.
