A review of the Indo-West Pacific species of the genus Glyphocrangon A. Milne-Edwards, 1881 (excluding the G. caeca species group) (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea: Glyphocrangonidae)
Une revision des especes de Carides du genre Glyphocrangon A. Milne-Edwards, 1881 de l'indo-ouest Pacifique est realisee a partir de l'etude des riches collections des expeditions francaises dansExpand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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.

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.

A revision of the genus Pandalus (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea: Pandalidae)
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 formExpand
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. Expand
A new genus and species of alvinocaridid shrimp (Crustacea: Decapoda: Caridea) from hydrothermal vents on the North Fiji and Lau Basins, south-western Pacific
A new taxon is described from hydrothermal vents in the North Fiji Basin and Lau Basin in the south-western Pacific with a well-developed, dorsally dentate rostrum, carapace with pterygostomian spine present, eye broadly fused mesially, epipod–setobranch complex present above pereopods, and appendix internae on second to fourth pleopods greatly reduced.

A world-wide review of species of the deep-water crangonid genus Parapontophilus Christoffersen, 1988 (Crustacea, Decapoda, Caridea), with descriptions of ten new species
Une revision mondiale des especes du genre Parapontophilus Christoffersen, 1988 (Decapoda, Caridea, Crangonidae) est presentee, mais elle devra etre utilisee avec precaution a cause des variations intraspecifiques presentees par de nombreuses espece. Expand
