Article
In this contribution, we describe two new species of burrowing crayfish species complex Parastacus brasiliensis from forestry areas in the central region of the state of Rio Grande do Sul, southern Brazil. We used an integrative taxonomy approach with morphology and the mitochondrial DNA 16S rRNA gene and also evaluated their conservation status ac...

The genus Orchestoidea Nicolet, 1849 is geographically restricted to sandy beaches of the southeastern Pacific coast of Chile, being found from 23°S (Antofagasta, northern Chile) to 45°S (Guamblin Island, southern Chile), along a latitudinal gradient of ca. 2,400 km. Orchestoidea tuberculata Nicolet, 1849, the only known species for the genus, was...

In 2018, unidentified packages appeared along approximately 1600 Km of the Brazilian coastline causing widespread pollution to beaches and danger to society. The packages were found to be bales of raw rubber ranging in size from 0.06 m³ to 3.4 m³ and weighing up to 200 kg. A few bales were marked with the stamp “Product of French Indochina” and col...

This study reports the occurrence of the pea-crab Calyptraeotheres garthi (Fenucci, 1975) for the State of Ceará, Northeastern Brazil. The crab was found associated to the calyptraeid limpet Crepidula plana (Say, 1822) in a Voluta ebraea (Linnaeus, 1758) shell occupied by the hermit crab Petrochirus diogenes (Linnaeus, 1758). This record represents...

In this contribution, we describe a new species of burrowing crayfish of the genus Parastacus from a swamp forest in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, southern Brazil, and evaluate its conservation status according to the IUCN Red List Criteria (sub-criterion B1). Parastacus macanudo sp. nov. differs from all other congeneric species in that it has a...

Two species of bopyrid isopods of the Bopyrinae subfamily are recorded from new localities and hosts in northeastern Brazil. Parabopyrella lata (Nierstrasz and Brender à Brandis, 1929) was recorded from the state of Ceará, found for the first time parasitising the caridean shrimp Alpheus packardii Kingsley, 1880. In addition, Probopyrus cf. pandali...
Chapter
Freshwater crayfish are represented by about 700 species distributed worldwide, except in continental Africa and Antarctica. They can be found in streams, lakes, burrows, caves and swamp forests. In South America, there are currently 19 native species distributed along three genera and two invasive species recorded. Besides, other aspects about sou...

Crayfish are one of the most iconic freshwater crustacean groups of the world. The wide range of biological adaptations of the freshwater crayfish to the limnetic ecosystems is surprising, as is there is high potential of some taxa to become invasive species. There is a constant growing interest in develop research with freshwater crayfish. They ca...
Chapter
Integrative taxonomy proposes a pluralistic approach to species description and other taxonomic works, combining the traditional taxonomy morphology-based with other tools such as molecular markers, ecological and population data, distribution and others. This approach has been useful in the study of biodiversity, especially for the evaluation and...
Chapter
An updated taxonomic review of Malacostraca from the Neotropical regions is presented in this chapter. Dichotomous identification keys to the lowest justifiable taxonomic level based on the most recent literature are provided. Material preparation methods, defined morphological terms, and current limitations in the knowledge of the group are also p...
Article
This study describes and illustrates the morphology of the second juvenile stage of the blue-fingered burrowing crayfish Parastacus caeruleodactylus. One female carrying 20 juveniles was collected in January 2019 from a swamp forest in the municipality of Dom Pedro de Alcântara, state of Rio Grande do Sul, southern Brazil. Juveniles were dissected...

Two species of bopyrid isopods from the subfamily Athelginae are recorded from new localities in northeastern Brazil. Parathelges foliatus Markham, 1972 was recorded for the first time from Brazil, in the state of Ceará, parasitising the hermit crab Clibanarius symmetricus (Randall, 1840). Pseudostegias atlantica Lemos de Castro, 1965 is recorded f...
Article
Neognathophausia ingens (Dohrn, 1870) is a bathypelagic crustacean distributed worldwide. In the western Atlantic it has been recorded off the La Plata region, Argentina, and off the coast of Brazil, from the state of Bahia to Rio de Janeiro. We provide new records of N. ingens from the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, about 1188 km south of its...
Article
The characterisation of intraspecific genetic diversity in representatives of the South American crayfish genus Parastacus Huxley, 1879 is here carried out for the first time by comparing populations of Parastacus brasiliensis (von Martens, 1869) as currently defined. Phylogenetic reconstructions based on mitochondrial and nuclear markers indicate...
Article
A new species of Pseudione Kossmann, 1881 is described from two parasitized specimens of the clawed lobster Nephropsis aculeata Smith, 1881, collected from Brazilian waters in the southwestern Atlantic. It is the second species of the genus from Brazil and is the fourth species parasitizing nephropid lobsters in the world.

Two new species of Parastacus Huxley, 1879 are described from the Atlantic Forest in southern Brazil: Parastacus buckupi sp. nov. from a highland stream in the hydrographic basin Maquiné river, Maquiné, state of Rio Grande do Sul; and Parastacus pilicarpus sp. nov. from a first order stream in the hydrographic basin Araranguá River, Morro Grande, s...
Article
The type specimen of Parastacus nicoleti (Philippi, 1882) was not designated and the material used for the description has never been found. We designate herein the neotype of P. nicoleti based on the examination of specimens from the type locality deposited in the Museo Nacional de Historia Natural of Chile previously analyzed by Bahamonde (1958),...

Paguroids are usually detritivorous organisms and the occurrence of predation on mollusks is very unusual. This contribution reports the occurrence of a predatory behavior of the paguroid Dardanus venosus (H. Milne Edwards, 1848) on the snail Aurantilaria aurantiaca (Lamarck, 1816). Single specimen of paguroid was found attacking the snail in a sea...

In this contribution we describe a new species of burrowing crayfish of the genus Parastacus Huxley, 1879 from a swamp forest in southern Brazil and determine its conservation status. The distinction of the new species is based on morphology and the mitochondrial DNA marker 16S rRNA. The extinction risk was assessed according to the sub-criterion B...

Brachyuran crabs are the dominant faunal group in mangrove areas, in terms of both numbers and biomass. Mangroves, the most conspicuous coastal ecosystems in the tropics, extend along almost the entire coast of Brazil and are a very important region for communities of benthic crustaceans, including many species of crabs. Members of the crab familie...
