The present section, Callianassida Dana, 1852, has recently been separated from the Thalassinida Dana, 1852; together these two sections constitute the infraorder Thalassinidea within the Decapoda. The section Thalassinida includes one superfamily, Thalassinoidea Dana, 1852, which is not considered herein. The Callianassida include two superfamilies, Axioidea Huxley, 1879 and Callianassoidea Dana, 1852. Those two superfamilies are reviewed according to the presence or absence of a rostral carina; cardiac sulcus(i); cardiac prominence; dorsal oval of the carapace; linea thalassinica; setal rows on carapace, abdomen, tail-fan, and pereiopods; the posterior whip of the maxilla 2 scaphognathite; a dorsal plate or lateral notch on the uropodal exopod; the male Plp1-2; and a median tooth of the prepyloric ossicle. In the present new classification, the section Callianassida thus comprises two superfamilies, Axioidea and Callianassoidea, 19 families including one new family and two families with a new status, 8 subfamilies including one subfam. nov., 116 genera including 41 gen. nov. and 8 genera sensu nov., and 419 species including 12 spp. nov. and 2 nom. nov.

Axioidea of the World and a Reconsideration of the Callianassoidea (Decapoda, Thalassinidea, Callianassida)
The monograph describes the Candoninae fauna of the Pilbara region, containing 84 species and 12 genera, of which 83 species and 11 genera are endemic. This ancient fauna holds one of the most important clues about the evolution of the subfamily.
The classification of the family Upogebiidae is critically reviewed. The material examined mainly originates from the collections of the Forschungsinstitut Senckenberg, Frankfurt/M, and the Zoological Museum of the University of Copenhagen. In all, two subfamilies, 11 genera and 157 species are ...
This book deals with a large number of deep-sea taxa of Tanaidacea from the Gulf of Mexico, primarily collected during the Deep Gulf of Mexico Benthos Study and the North Gulf of Mexico Continental Shelf Study. Four new genera, are described. Twenty-one new species belonging to the new and ...
The classification of the mud shrimps of the superfamily Callianassoidea, currently including at least 3 families with 20 genera and 219 species, is revised. These shrimps are important agents in sea floor bioturbation, hence comprise a crucial factor in the ecology of neritic and benthic ...
