One of the most notable evolutionary innovations of marine invertebrates is the snapping claw of alpheid shrimps (Alpheidae), capable of generating a powerful water jet and a shock wave, used for defense, aggression, excavation, and communication. Evolutionary analysis of this character complex requires the study of a suite of complementary traits to discern pre-adaptations or post-adaptations of snapping behavior. A comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of the Alpheidae based on two mitochondrial and four nuclear markers, covering 107 species from 38 genera (77.6% generic coverage), is presented. Ancestral state reconstruction analyses revealed five independent origins of snapping, two of which relate to the morphologically similar but phylogenetically distant genera Alpheus and Synalpheus, highlighting significant convergence. The evolution of the five complementary traits (adhesive plaques, tooth-cavity system, dactylar joint type, chela size enlargement, and orbital hood) did not always show a significant correlation with the evolution of snapping overall, sometimes only in a few lineages, suggesting different evolutionary pathways were involved and demonstrating the versatility in the evolution of the snapping mechanisms.
