Hexapleomera urashima sp. nov. (Crustacea: Tanaidacea), a tanaidid epibiotic on loggerhead sea turtles at Yakushima Island, Japan.
We describe Hexapleomera urashima sp. nov. from the carapaces of loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) on Yakushi-ma Island, southwestern Japan, the primary nesting site for the North PacificExpand

Molecular Systematics of Tanaidacea (Crustacea: Peracarida) Based on 18S Sequence Data, with an Amendment of Suborder/Superfamily-Level Classification
Phylogenetic relationships within Tanaidacea were analyzed based on sequence data for the 18S rRNA gene. Our results strongly supported a monophyletic group composed of Neotanaidae, Tanaoidea, andExpand

Targeted gene disruption by use of CRISPR/Cas9 ribonucleoprotein complexes in the water flea Daphnia pulex
The microcrustacean Daphnia pulex is an important model for environmental, ecological, evolutionary and developmental genomics because its adaptive life history displays plasticity in response toExpand

Diverse pereopodal secretory systems implicated in thread production in an apseudomorph tanaidacean crustacean
Among arthropods, various insects, spiders, and crustaceans produce thread. The crustacean Tanaidacea include species that use thread mainly to construct dwelling tubes. While thread production wasExpand

A novel transmission pathway: first report of a larval trematode in a tanaidacean crustacean
This study reports on the first trematode parasite observed in any species in the crustacean order Tanaidacea. Metacercariae occupying the body cavity of the host (Longiflagrum nasutus) were detectedExpand

Phylogenetic Position of Arctotanais in the Suborder Tanaidomorpha (Peracarida: Tanaidacea)
ABSTRACT Lack of an ischium on pereiopods 1–6 was previously considered a synapomorphy for the tanaidacean superfamily Tanaoidea, although descriptions of Arctotanais alascensis (Richardson, 1899),Expand

Selfing in a malacostracan crustacean: why a tanaidacean but not decapods
The crustacean class Malacostraca, with over 22,000 species, includes commercially important members, such as crabs, shrimps, and lobsters. A few simultaneous hermaphrodites are known in this group,Expand
