Two species of parasitic copepods (Caligidae) new to Japan
Two species of parasitic copepods (Siphonostomatoida: Caligidae), Caligus sclerotinosus Roubal, Armitage & Rohde, 1983, and Lepeophtheirus longiventralis Yü & Wu, 1932, parasitic on spotted halibut Verasper variegatus (Temminck & Schlegel), are redescribed based on material found on their respective hosts cultured in Japan.

Description of Kelleria reducta sp. nov. (Copepoda, Cyclopoida, Kelleriidae) from a brackish system in northwestern Mexico
Specimens of an unknown species of the monotypic family Kelleriidae Humes & Boxshall, 1996 were found in sediment samples taken during a number of sampling campaigns in two brackish systems inExpand
Parasitic copepods reported from Mexico
Most reports (97%) are from marine or brackishhabitats infecting fish hosts (71% of all reports), which shows that knowledge about the biodiversity of parasitic copepods in Mexico is in its infancy. Expand
Redescription of Cletocamptus albuquerquensis and C. dominicanus (Harpacticoida: Canthocamptidae incertae sedis), and description of two new species from the US Virgin Islands and Bonaire.
Inspection of biological material from Saskatchewan, Wyoming, Trinidad and Tobago, and the British Virgin Islands revealed that C. albuquerquensis and C. dominicanus are distinct and identifiable species, distributed in a more restricted area than previously thought. Expand
A new bomolochid copepod parasitic on bullseye puffer Sphoeroides annulatus (Jenyns) from Mexico, with reassignment of some species of Acantholochus Cressey and Hamaticolax Ho & Lin
It is suggested that species of the genus Acantholochus can only be distinguished from those of the genera Hamaticolax by the absence of the accessory process of the maxillipedal claw. Expand
On a small collection of harpacticoids from Easter Island: The family Laophontidae T. Scott (Crustacea: Copepoda: Harpacticoida)
This book discusses Laophontidae, a superfamily of Laophontoidea related to Phycolaophonte Pallares, and its role in the development of Harpacticoida Sars, which was first described in detail in 1990. Expand
Abstract Sediment samples were taken during a short-term study of the distribution of meiofauna from a coastal lagoon in Sinaloa (northwestern Mexico). Several species of harpacticoids (Copepoda:Expand
Cletocamptus goenchim sp. nov., a new harpacticoid (Copepoda: Harpacticoida) from India
Abstract A new species of harpacticoid copepod, Cletocamptus goenchim sp. nov., was found in the mouth of the Mandovi estuary, Goa, India. This species seems to be the same reported in 1979 from LakeExpand
On four new species of Cletocamptus Shmankevich, 1875 (Copepoda: Harpacticoida) from inland waters of Argentina
Four new species of Cletocamptus are described and one of them is unique in the strong spinules along the posterior margin of the P2- to P4-bearing somites. Expand
Diversity of sea lice (Copepoda: Caligidae) parasitic on marine fishes with commercial and aquaculture importance in Chamela Bay, Pacific coast of Mexico by using morphology and DNA barcoding, with
The molecular analyses support the recognition of the new species and suggest that neither Caligus nor Lepeophtheirus are monophyletic, although a more robust reference database is needed to expand the ability to accomplish a molecular identification. Expand
