ABSTRACT Over 1,300 fossil decapods have been collected from the Upper Cretaceous Coon Creek Formation in Union County, Mississippi. The fauna is dominated by Dakoticancer australis Rathbun, 1935 (raised from subspecies rank) (49%), with smaller proportions of numerous other taxa: Protocallianassa mortoni (Pilsbry, 1901) (26.9%); Hoploparia tennesseensis Rathbun, 1926 (10.1%); Linuparus canadensis (Whiteaves, 1885) (4.7%); Tetracarcinus subquadrataWeller, 1905 (2.8%); Notopocorystes testacea (Rathbun, 1926) (2.7%); Paguristes whitteni, new species (2.8%); Raninella tridens Roberts, 1962 (0.8%); Eryma flecta Rathbun, 1926 (0.3%), and Cristipluma mississippiensis, new species (0.1%). Paguristes whitteni, new species, is represented by an enigmatic series of 30 claws. Cristipluma mississippiensis, new species, is based on a single specimen. Its scarcity in the shallow water Coon Creek fauna attests to the probability of Cristipluma already at that time inhabiting deep water (as is the case with the recent retroplumids found mostly in deep Indo-Pacific waters).
