Decapoda and Isopoda, mainly North Sea, Mediterranean, Japan. -- Largest collection of japanese crabs outside of Japan. -- One of the largest freshwatercrab-collection of the world meer

The Crustacea collection (except ostracods, see for that group Section Micropaleontology I) currently comprises about 32,000 catalogued lots, consisting of about 400,000 individuals. Together with the large amount of unidentified and uncatalogued samples (about 10,000) this is one of the largest collections in Europe. Also within the collection there are a number of areas of international scientific importance: decapods of Europe, Near East and Far East (largest collection of Japanese decapods outside Japan) and the freshwater crab collection, which contains many type specimens. Besides this the terrestrial isopod collection becomes very significant. Remarkable special collections are the former private decapod collection of Tune Sakai; the crustacean collection of the Heidelberg-Museum; and the crustacean collection of the Zoological Museum of Göttingen University, which was deposited at the Senckenberg in 1985. During the last century the Göttingen Crustacea collection was one of the largest in Germany, it contains about 1,500 lots forming the basis for a number of classical research publications. The computer-catalogue (SeSam) covers about 65% of the whole collection (about 21,000 catalogue numbers). This includes all incoming material since 1989 and parts of the other collection that have been revised by scientists of the section or visiting scientists. Besides crustaceans the section also administers the collections of other marine Arthropods (Xiphosura, Pantopoda), consisting of about 1,750 catalogued and about 800 uncatalogued lots.
