What is, and what is not, Caprella acanthifera Leach, 1814 (Amphipoda, Caprellidea)? Part 1: the acanthifera-group
The taxon Caprella acanthifera auct., usually considered to be one ‘highly variable’ species, is shown here to consist of a number of closely related species. In this paper three species of the groupExpand
Minute but constant morphological differences within members of Stenothoidae: the Stenothoe gallensis group with four new members, keys to Stenothoe worldwide, a new species of Parametopa and Sudanea
The studied material yields both a new species of Parametopa (P. gorea n. sp.) and a new genus (Sudanea n. gen.) of Stenothoe, all new to science. Expand
Melita mirzajanii n. sp. (Crustacea: Amphipoda: Melitidae), a puzzling new member of the Caspian fauna.
Its most striking characters are: absence of any pleonal or urosomal dorsal teeth, elongated distal article of the mandibular palp, hind margin of last pereopod bases strongly narrowed distad, and epimera posterodistally rectangular. Expand
On some maerid and melitid material (Crustacea: Amphipoda) collected by the Hourglass Cruises (Florida). Part 2: Genera Dulichiella and Elasmopus, with a key to world Elasmopus
This paper deals with some of the Amphipoda Maeridae and Melitidae, i.e. one species in the genus Dulichiella and two in Elasmopus, collected during the Hourglass cruises, a 28-month samplingExpand
Maeridae, the Ceradocus group
Eight genera, of which one is new to science and 18 species, are reported, primarily living in the crevices of the reef or among algae, but one genus is probably interstitial. Expand
On the Austral-Antarctic stenothoids Proboloides, Metopoides, Torometopa and Scaphodactylus (Crustacea, Amphipoda) Part 1: genus Metopoides
This is the first part of a revision of the most plesiomorphic genera in the amphipod family Stenothoidae, and a cladistic analysis as well as a survey and partial redescription of all Metopoides species are presented. Expand
Amphipoda (Crustacea: Peracarida) from chemically reduced habitats; the hydrothermal vent system of the north-east Pacific. Part II. Melitidae and Eusiridae
The amphipod fauna from habitats in hydrothermal vents on the Juan de Fuca Ridge, Escabana Trough, and Gorda Ridge and from experimental wood deployments is examined. The material revealed one newExpand
New or amended data on Mediterranean Amphipoda: genera Dexamine, Ericthonius and Stenothoe.
The Mediterranean amphipod species Dexamine filiola n. sp. and Ericthonius didymus n. sp. were discovered by their ovigerous females which differ in length from morphologically similar species. AnExpand
Stenothoids living with or on other animals (Crustacea, Amphipoda)
This paper describes new or little known species of Stenothoidae, collected from sea anemones, bivalves or hermit crabs. A key to world Stenula species is provided.
A new species of Caprella (Amphipoda: Caprellidae) from the Cape Verde Islands (Atlantic), with note on Mediterranean Caprella liparotensis
Caprella wirtzi sp. nov. from the Cape Verde Islands is described. It is close to C. liparotensis a species recorded from Portugal and along the Mediterranean coasts to the Black Sea, butExpand
