I made a quick search at the omniscient Google. :-) It seems that in the
definition of decrescendo decresc. is used more often as the abbreviation
than decr. (9650 to 581) *). The decr. is used too, though and I can
understand both. 

However, if crescendo is abbreviated cresc. then it is logical to abbreviate
decrescendo decresc. by just adding a de- in the beginning. I don't have any
music notation hand book close by so this point of view is not based on any
hard facts.


decrescendo decresc -> 9650
decrescendo decr -> 581
