Identification guide no. 44.
Zoological catalogue of Australia volume 19.3A Crustacea: Malacostraca: Phyllocarida, Hoplocarida, Eucarida (part one).Artist/Author: Davie, P.J.F.
Covers the commercially important crustacean species – shrimps, prawns, lobsters and yabbies, listing over 1200 species known from Australian waters. The volume opens with a general introduction to the Malacostraca, giving an historical overview of the work on this group. The Catalogue then summarises the baseline data on nomenclature and taxonomy of all Phyllocarida, Hoplocarida and Eucarida (with the exception of crabs, hermit crabs and their allies). For each family there is a brief introduction and diagnosis, then Australian species are cited by name and original references are given.
This is a timely listing of all known taxa for this economically significant group: it assembles the baseline data; it highlights gaps and areas of confusion; and it identifies groups requiring attention. As such, it is an important text for fisheries workers and managers, environmental consultants and researchers specialising in crustacea.

A Field Guide to Crustaceans of Australian Waters is a complete summary of Australia’s known crustaceans. It is the only book of its kind. This second edition incorporates up-to-date information, checked by world experts, and even features the recently discovered subterranean crustaceans, some of which have never – literally – seen the light of day. This book will be of interest to fishermen, both amateur and professional. Marine zoologists, research organisations and fisheries will find it useful for identification and other purposes. For the general reader, it will open a door on the competitive and often dangerous life of ocean-dwellers.
