A revision of the genus Alvinocaris Williams and Chace (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea: Alvinocarididae), with descriptions of a new genus and a new species of Alvinocaris
The caridean shrimp genus Alvinocaris Williams and Chace, 1982 (Bresilioidea: Alvinocarididae) is revised based upon type material and newly obtained samples from various reducing environments of the deep‐sea floor of the world, and a new monotypic genus, Shinkaicaris, is established.

Three-year investigations into sperm whale-fall ecosystems in Japan
Benthic communities were similar across all the carcasses studied, although the body sizes of the whales were very different, and the succession of epifaunal communities was relatively rapid and the sulphophilic stage was considerably shorter than that of other known whale falls.
Taxonomic Review of the Hydrothermal Vent Shrimp Genera Rimicaris Williams & Rona and Chorocaris Martin & Hessler (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea: Alvinocarididae)
An examination of a good series of material from the Mid-Atlantic Ridge shows that juveniles of Rimicaris exoculata can be arranged in four sequential ontogenetic stages based on morphology, and close relationship between the two genera is confirmed by morphological characters, but the monophyly of Chorocaris is not corroborated.
The Identity of Pagurus brachiomastus and Descriptions of Two New Species of Pagurus (Crustacea : Decapoda : Anomura : Paguridae) from the Northwestern Pacific

- 31 August 2000
Critical examination of abundant material from various localities in Japan and the Russian Far East has revealed that three distinct species have been confbunded under the name Pagurus brachiomastus, and two new species are described and illustrated.
Review of the hydrothermal vent shrimp genus Mirocaris, redescription of M-fortunata and reassessment of the taxonomic status of the family Alvinocarididae (Crustacea : Decapoda : Caridea)
This study has revealed that the supposed morphological characters distinguishing M. fortunata and M. keldyshi do not provide significant taxonomic differences and further comparison failed to detect morphological differences between the two taxa, and so there is only one single species in the genus Mirocaris.

The genus Pandalus Leach, 1814, is revised based upon the abundant material from collections in various museums or institutions in the world. Altogether 20 species are recognized which appear to form…
A new genus and two new species of alvinocaridid shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea) from a hydrothermal vent field off northeastern Taiwan
Two new species of alvinocaridid shrimps are described from a hydrothermal vent field off northeastern Taiwan at depths of 252–300 m, which constitute the first discovery of the family AlvinOCarididae in Taiwanese waters and represent the shallowest occurrence for alvinokaridids.
