The discovery of an existing member of the Glypheidae, a family believed to have been extinct since the Eocene, may yield significant information on the evolution and classification of the decapod Crustacea. The single known specimen displays characters not apparent infossil material, some ofthem perhaps representative of an ancestral decapod lineage, others reminiscent of the Astacidea and Thalassinidea.
