A worldwide review of fossil and extant glypheid and litogastrid lobsters (Crustacea, Decapoda, Glypheoidea)

A worldwide review of fossil and extant glypheid and litogastrid lobsters (Crustacea, Decapoda, Glypheoidea)
A worldwide review of fossil and extant glypheid and litogastrid lobsters (Crustacea, Decapoda, Glypheoidea)
This volume is dedicated to the fossil and extant glypheoid lobsters (Eucrustacea, Decapoda, Glypheoidea) included in the families Glypheidae Zittel, 1885 and Litogastridae Karasawa, Schweitzer & Feldmann, 2013. The knowledge of these groups has increased enormously during recent years. Many new species have been added and progress in phylogenalc analyses has changed our view of the generic and familial classifications. The main purpose of this volume is to provide a new synthesis taking into account these additions and progress to date. Thus, a general review of the fossil and extant glypheid and litogastrid lobsters is here presented. The taxonomic treatment includes a detailed description of the type species and of all species herein included in each genus. All the diagnoses and descriptions are reported using standard criteria and common descriptive terminology. As much as was possible, we have endeavoured to figure all the species recorded in the literature with photographs and reproductions of the historical illustrations. Thus about 990 specimens have been studied and are illustrated in 583 figures.

Amongst the Glypheidae, the systematic validity of the genera Glyphea Meyer, 1835, Paraglyphea Beurlen, 1928, Glypheopsis Beurlen, 1928, Trachysoma Bell, 1858, Heteroglyphaea Colosi, 1921, Neoglyphea Forest & de Saint Laurent, 1975 and Lauren taeglyphea Forest, 2006 is confirmed or re-established based upon morphological characters. Three new genera are erected to accommodate the unique characters of three groups of glypheid lobsters: Angarestia n. gen., Gigacerina n. gen. and Rectaglyphea n. gen. All the glypheid genera together represent 83 valid names of fossil and Recent species. Twelve species are included with doubt in different glypheid genera because of the lack of diagnostic characters. Eight new species are described: Glyphea oolitica n. sp., Paraglyphea locardi n. sp., Paraglyphea mistelgauensis n. sp., Glypheopsis trouvillensis n. sp., Glypheopsis voultensis n. sp., Angarestia viallei n. sp., Angarestia mugudaensis n. sp. and Rectaglyphea howardae n. sp.

Amongst the Litogastridae, the systematic validity of the genera Litogaster Meyer, 1847 and Pseudoglyphea Oppel, 1861 is also confirmed based upon morphological characters. A new genus is erected to accommodate the unique characters of a group of litogastrid lobsters: Audogaster n. gen. These genera together represent 26 valid names of fossil species. Seven species are included with doubt in different litogastrid genera because of the lack of true diagnostic characters. One new species is described: Audogaster assmanni n. sp.

Our review leads us to assign 12 species originally placed within the glypheid lobsters to the Mecochiridae Van Straelen, 1925, Erymidae Van Straelen, 1925, Paguridae Latreille, 1802 and Callianassidae Dana, 1852, respectively.

Abstract

This volume is dedicated to the fossil and extant glypheoid lobsters (Eucrustacea, Decapoda, Glypheoidea) included in the families Glypheidae Zittel, 1885 and Litogastridae Karasawa, Schweitzer & Feldmann, 2013. The knowledge of these groups has increased enormously during recent years. Many new species have been added and progress in phylogenalc analyses has changed our view of the generic and familial classifications. The main purpose of this volume is to provide a new synthesis taking into account these additions and progress to date. Thus, a general review of the fossil and extant glypheid and litogastrid lobsters is here presented. The taxonomic treatment includes a detailed description of the type species and of all species herein included in each genus. All the diagnoses and descriptions are reported using standard criteria and common descriptive terminology. As much as was possible, we have endeavoured to figure all the species recorded in the literature with photographs and reproductions of the historical illustrations. Thus about 990 specimens have been studied and are illustrated in 583 figures.

Amongst the Glypheidae, the systematic validity of the genera Glyphea Meyer, 1835, Paraglyphea Beurlen, 1928, Glypheopsis Beurlen, 1928, Trachysoma Bell, 1858, Heteroglyphaea Colosi, 1921, Neoglyphea Forest & de Saint Laurent, 1975 and Lauren taeglyphea Forest, 2006 is confirmed or re-established based upon morphological characters. Three new genera are erected to accommodate the unique characters of three groups of glypheid lobsters: Angarestia n. gen., Gigacerina n. gen. and Rectaglyphea n. gen. All the glypheid genera together represent 83 valid names of fossil and Recent species. Twelve species are included with doubt in different glypheid genera because of the lack of diagnostic characters.
