Six Species of the Lernanthropidae (Crustacea: Copepoda) Parasitic on Marine Fishes of Taiwan, with a Key to 18 Species of the Family Known from Taiwan
This paper proposes treating Mitrapus rubiginosus (Redkar, Rangnekar et Murti 1949) as a junior synonym of M. heteropodus as a key to the 18 species of lernanthropids occurring on marine fishes of Taiwan.

The larval development of Caligus epidemicus comprises ten stages: two nauplii, one copepodid, six chalimus, and one preadult (young adult) stages, which is described based on material reared from eggs in the laboratory.
Two species of Caligus (Copepoda: Caligidae) parasitic on black sea bream (Acanthopagrus schlegeli) cultured in Taiwan.
This study shows that Caligus dieuzeidei reported by Shiino in 1954 from Sparus macrocephalus (=Acanthopagrus schlegeli) was a misidentification for C. latigenitalis.
Development of Caligus multispinosus Shen, a caligid copepod parasitic on the black sea bream (Acanthopagrus schlegeli) cultured in Taiwan
The development of Caligus multispinosus was studied using instars reared from eggs in the laboratory and specimens obtained from the gills of pond-cultured black sea bream. Nine stages were

Solution to the Taxonomic Confusion Surrounding Caligus epinepheli Yamaguti, a Caligid Copepod (Siphonostomatoida) Parasitic on Marine Fishes
Comparative studies of specimens of Caligus recovered from Scolopsis vosmeri (Bloch), Lobotes surinamensis (Bloch), and Acanthopagrus schlegeli Bleeker caught in the waters of Taiwan revealed that
Three species of Caligus Müller, 1785 (Copepoda: Caligidae) parasitic on Caranx spp. (Teleostei: Carangidae) off Taiwan
The first report of C. fortis outside the Australian and Indian regions is reported, and the new species is distinguished from its congeners in lacking postantennal process and carrying a pair of tiny, tooth-like, sharp protuberances on the posterior margin of the cephalothoracic shield.
