Revision of the East Asian species of Crangon (Decapoda: Caridea: Crangonidae)
—Based on several type specimens and material collected from various localities, the East Asian species of Crangon are revised. C. affinis De Haan, 1849, C. propinquus Stimpson, 1860, C. dalliExpand
A revision of the genus Prionocrangon (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea: Crangonidae)
The genus Prionocrangon is newly diagnosed and a key to the species is provided, Nevertheless, a damaged specimen from the Sulu Sea could not be satisfactorily assigned to any of the above seven species, suggesting that this genus may have even higher diversity. Expand
A new species of the genus Vercoia from Okinawa Island, Japan (Crustacea, Decapoda, Caridea, Crangonidae), with descriptions of its zoeal stages
The larvae of the new species, which are the first larvae of a species assigned to Vercoia to be described, are very similar to those of species of Philocheras, but they differ in the setation of the endopods of the maxillule and maxilla. Expand
Larval Development of Latreutes laminirostris (Decapoda: Hippolytidae) Reared in the Laboratory
It is postulated that the larva described by Gurney (1937) was probably in stage VI rather than stage IV, and the morphological characters of the genus Latreutes are summarized. Expand
A New Record of Pandalid Shrimp Procletes levicarina (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea) from Korean Waters
The pandalid shrimp Procletes levicarina (Bate, 1888) was newly collected from the western and southern waters of Jeju Island, Korea. This species is the only known member of the genus ProcletesExpand
Larval development of Pandalus gracilis Stimpson (Crustacea: Decapoda: Pandalidae) reared in the laboratory
The complete larval development of Pandalus gracilis Stimpson is described based on larvae reared in the laboratory. The species has four larval stages (stages 1–4) and one postlarval stage (stageExpand
Syncrangon, a New Crangonid Genus, with Redescriptions of S. angusticauda (De Haan) and S. dentata (Balss) (Crustacea, Decapoda, Caridea) from East Asian Waters
A new genus of the crangonid shrimps, Syncrangon, is proposed for Crangon angusticauda De Haan, 1849 and S. dentata Balss, 1914, both from East Asian waters, which are easily distinguished from each other by many characters, especially the rostral and abdominal features. Expand
Six Pandalid Shrimps of the Genus Plesionika (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea) in Korea
Based on samples collected from the Korean Exclusive Economic Zone during an investigation of fishery resources by the National Fisheries Research and Development Institute from 2002 to 2010, alongside some supplemental material, six species of the genus Plesionika are identified: P. izumiae and P. ortmanni, the last four species are new to Korean marine fauna and the distributional range of P. narval extends to the East China Sea off Jeju Island.
