Abstract

Podotrematous crabs from the Cretaceous worldwide are examined and reassigned, resulting in Vespridromites new genus, Notiodromia new genus, and Antarctiprosopon new genus, and seven new combinations. Torynommidae is severely restricted. Longodromitidae as currently recognized extends into the Eocene and has a well-established Cretaceous record.
