- 4 December 2012
The first register of the marine species of the world is compiled and it is estimated that between one-third and two-thirds of marine species may be undescribed, and previous estimates of there being well over one million marine species appear highly unlikely.
A WORLDWIDE REVISION OF THE RECENT AND FOSSIL SAND CRABS OF THE ALBUNEIDAE STIMPSON AND BLEPHARIPODIDAE, NEW FAMILY (CRUSTACEA: DECAPODA: ANOMURA: HIPPOIDEA)
- C. Boyko
- 1 October 2002
The state of taxonomic knowledge regarding the Albuneidae is summarized; the family is divided into two new subfamilies; two new genera and six new species of albuneids are described; and new information on species' ranges and biology is presented.
The Global Diversity of Parasitic Isopods Associated with Crustacean Hosts (Isopoda: Bopyroidea and Cryptoniscoidea)
Most epicarideans areknown from relatively shallow waters, although some bopyrids are known from depths below 4000 m, and it is predicted that the Central Indian Ocean and East Asian Sea hold a wealth of undescribed species, reflecting knowledge of host diversity patterns.
A molecular phylogeny of Bopyroidea and Cryptoniscoidea (Crustacea: Isopoda)
Coevolution between host and parasite phylogenies showed extensive incongruence, indicating frequent host-switching as a general pattern in Epicaridea.
The unwanted guests of hermits: A global review of the diversity and natural history of hermit crab parasites
The information presented herein on geographical distribution of host species, the prevalence of their parasites, and known host-parasite relationships should be useful for developing models that will elicit a greater understanding of hermit crab parasitism.
Crustacean Parasites as Phylogenetic Indicators in Decapod Evolution
The evolutionary history of decapods and their parasites is assessed with particular reference to the use of parasites as proxies for host phylogeny. We focused on two groups of obligate parasites…
The Endemic Marine Invertebrates of Easter Island: How Many Species and for How Long?
- C. Boyko
Of the terrestrial invertebrate fauna, only the insects have been studied in any detail (Compos & Pena, 1973); there are no comprehensive published accounts of the sparse isopod, mollusk, or flatwork freshwater faunas to date.

A Review of Bopyrids (Crustacea: Isopoda: Bopyridae) Parasitic on Caridean Shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea) from China
A review of 37 bopyrid isopods known to infest 43 species of caridean shrimps in China is presented, based on literature records and new material. Synonymies are provided for all species, with…
Recent and fossil Isopoda Bopyridae parasitic on squat lobsters and porcelain crabs (Crustacea: Anomura: Chirostyloidea and Galatheoidea), with notes on nomenclature and biogeography
The deepest bathymetric records of bopyrids on squat lobster hosts 5210 m, and records of swellings interpreted as indications ofbopyrid presence in fossil host taxa are noted.
