Fossil Crustacea (Excluding Cirripedia and Ostracoda) in the University of Bucharest Collections, Romania, Including Two New Species01/01/2009
The Paleontological Collections of the University of Bucharest, Romania, house a broad range of specimens of Crustacea including crabs, lobsters, shrimps, and isopods, including several types or illustrated specimens. Some of the material forms the basis for a new species of raninid crab, Lophoranina albeshtensis, from Eocene rocks of the southern Carpathians and a new species of pagurid, Orhomalus spinosus, from the Jurassic of Dobrogea, eastern Romania. The type specimens of Coeloma macoveii Lǎzǎrescu, 1959, from the Miocene of Romania form the basis for a redescription of the species. Eryma spp. are reported from Romania for the first time. Included in the collection are specimens from Romania, other areas of Europe, and North America.
