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
The cryptogenic parasitic isopod Orthione griffenis Markham, 2004 from the eastern and western Pacific.
The first record of O. griffenis from Chinese waters is reported based on collections made in the 1950s, which pre-date any records of the species from the United States by at least 20 years.
The Bopyridae (Crustacea: Isopoda) parasitic on thalassinideans (Crustacea: Decapoda) from China
Eight species among six genera of bopyrid isopods infesting thalassinideans from China are reported, with four species being new to science and extending their range north.
Four new records and a new species of Dactylokepon Stebbing, 1910 (Epicaridea: Bopyridae: Ioninae) from Chinese waters
Five species of the parasitic isopod genus Dactylokepon are described from brachyuran crabs and a scyllarid shrimp collected in Chinese waters, and one species is new to science, having a prominent trifid frontal lamina and a distinct digitate barbula.
First record of the family Spengeliidae (Hemichordata: Enteropneusta) from Chinese waters, with description of a new species
A new species of the genus G landiceps found in Jiaozhou Bay, Qingdao, Shandong Province, named Glandiceps qingdaoensis is found, which has a long proboscis with dorsal and ventral grooves, a stomochord with a long vermiform process.
A new species and two new record species of genus Allokepon Markham, 1982 (Isopoda: Epicaridea: Bopyridae) from China
Descriptions of a new species and two new records of species of the genus Allokepon Markham, 1982 from Chinese waters are presented, and the male of A. monodi is presented.
The first complete mitochondrial genome of a parasitic isopod supports Epicaridea Latreille, 1825 as a suborder and reveals the less conservative genome of isopods
The results cast doubt that Epicaridea Latreille, 1825 can be placed as an infraorder within the suborder Cymothoida, and Epicaridesa appears to also deserve subordinal rank.

The new species Tylokepon biturus from Menaethius monoceros (Latreille) collected in China is distinguished from other members of the genus by the striking shape of the head, two mid-dorsal projections on Pereomere 6, and entire pleopods and uropods without any tubercules on their surface.
First record of the genus Gigantione (Epicaridea: Bopyridae: Pseudioninae) from Chinese waters, with description of three new species
The parasitic isopod genus Gigantione is first recorded from China. Four species are reported infesting xanthid and goneplacid crabs, three are new to science, and one is a new record from China.
Review of the parasitic genus Epipenaeon Nobili, 1906 (Crustacea: Isopoda: Bopyridae), with new records and redescription of four species from China
All species reported are redescribed from new material and a key to the genus Epipenaeon Nobili is provided, and four host species are recorded for the first time bearing parasitic isopods.
