Examination of E. LőRenthey's decapod material in the Staatliches Museum für Naturkunde, Stuttgart, as well as other museums, has resulted in several new genera and species from the Eocene of Egypt. The Eocene Egyptian decapod fauna was robust, unsurprising given the diverse Eocene faunas known from Italy, Spain, and North America. The revision of Palaeocarpilius is included. New genera include Bryocarpilius, Hemsut, Laticarpilius, and Tumidomaia; new species include Bryocarpilus aspidorsalis, Laticarpilius aegypticus, Lophoranina cinquecrista, Ocalina delicata, Planobranchia egyptensis, and Tumidomaia mokattamensis. There are numerous new combinations for Hemsut, Liopsalis, Paraocalina, Harpactocarcinus, Laticarpilius, and Bryocarpilius.
