Decapod crustaceans from the Middle Miocene (Badenian) deposits of Southern Poland

Reinchard Förster


The assemblages of the decapod crustacean remains from the Middle Miocene (Badenian) of the Fore-Carpathian Depression (exclusively the Korytnica Clays) and of the Carpathians contain predominantly fragments of finger tips or chelae attributable to xanthid crabs. One species of the dorippid crabs is described new, Dorippe? carpathica. sp. n. The occurrence of the genera Macrophthalmus and Dorippe supports closer affinities to the Recent tropical/subtropical Indo-Pacific realm.ö
