Early classifications involving peneids, stenopodids, carideans, and procaridids are reviewed.These shrimp-like decapods have at various times been placed together in one suborder or in three separate suborders. The morphological characteristics of these groups are reviewed with particular reference to the gills, protocephalic skeleton, and foregut. We conclude that Dendrobranchiata (Peneoidea and Sergestoidea), Stenopodidea, and Procaridoidea represent independent evolutionary lines. We suggest that the Caridea is a heterogeneous group that should be re-examined.
